Ricoh MP5125A DVD+RW

3. CloneCD Reading Tests

Ricoh MP5125A IDE DVD+RW - Page 3

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v4.0.0.0 beta 30) and 5 original CDs - Euro 2000 (SafeDisc 1), No One Lives For Ever / Serious Sam (SafeDisc 2), Rally Masters (LaserLock 1), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - in order to test the reading time of Ricoh MP5125A. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup media. The following picture shows the Ricoh's MP5125A reading/writing capabilities:

PSX Pressed Media

Ricoh MP5125A finished the PSX ripping fast after 100 seconds. However, the MP5120A was faster by 12 seconds.

SafeDisc 1/2 Results

Ricoh MP5125A showed a very bad performance with SafeDisc 1 protected CDs. The drive skips bad sectors very slowly, even compared to Ricoh MP5120A

With SafeDisc 2 protected CDs, Ricoh MP7320A continues its bad performance as mentioned earlier.

LaserLock 1/2 Results

Ricoh MP5125A continues its bad performance during the LaserLock protected CDs test.

LaserLock 2 CDs are even harder to backup for MP5125A.

SecuROM Results

Ricoh MP5125A was faster in the SecuROM v2 test but the performance is still in low levels and Ricoh MP5120A performed better in the same test.
