3. CloneCD Reading Tests

Waitec X-FILE DVD+RW - Page 3

CloneCD Reading Tests


We used CloneCD (v4.0.0.1) and 5 original CDs - No One Lives For Ever / Serious Sam (SafeDisc 2), Desperados (LaserLock 2) and V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) - in order to test the reading time of Waitec X-FILE. 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 drive's reading/writing capabilities:

PSX Pressed Media

For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to HD with CloneCD. We measured the reading times for Waitec X-FILE, which is low (87secs).

SafeDisc v.2 Results

Waitec X-FILE seems to have problems with SafeDisc v.2 protected CDs. The drive was reading slowly and Aopen RW5120 / Philips DVDRW1208 are faster.

LaserLock v.2 Results

In the LaserLock v.2 test, Waitec X-FILE was slow in the original CD test but in the backup test was faster and gave the second best performance, following Ricoh MP5120A.

SecuROM Results

Good performance for Waitec X-FILE in the SecuROM v.2 test. The drive shares the first performance position with the Ricoh and Philips drives in the original title test, and kept the same performance in the backup CD test.
