CD-RW Roundup Vol 3 - Page
We used CloneCD (v184.108.40.206) and 4 original CDs - Serious Sam 2 (SafeDisc 2),
Desperados (LaserLock 2), V-Rally 2 Expert (SecuROM 2) and NBA Jam Extreme (PSX)
- in order to test the reading time of the drives. We also tested the reading
performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies
between original and backup media. The following pictures show the drive(s)
reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports:
- PSX Pressed Media
The faster reader at this test comes from LG with 55secs. The Philips PCRW4012P
needs 161secs and the CyQve 4048 13secs more to end the task.
- SafeDisc 2 Results
Both CyQve 4048 and Philips PCRW4012P are very slow with SafeDisc 2 discs.
The Samsung SW-240B is the only drive with high performance in this test.
- LaserLock 2 Results
With LaserLock v.2 protected CDs, the CyQve 4048 performed well with the
original disc, but with the backup disc it needed almost twice the time. The
Philips PCRW4012P is slow with the original disc, but improves its performance
with the CD-R backup.
- SecuROM Results
All tested drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The faster
drive comes from CyberDrive. The CyQve 4048 comes third and the Philips PCRW4012P
