MP5125A IDE DVD+RW - Page
We used CloneCD (v22.214.171.124 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

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

in low levels and Ricoh MP5120A performed better in the same test.
