Waitec sfinx16

3. CloneCD Reading Tests


CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD (v4.0.1.9) 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 reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports:

- PSX Pressed Media

Toshiba SD-R1202 finished the PSX ripping fast in 79 seconds. Waitec SfinX was 18 seconds slower.

- SafeDisc v.2 Results

With SafeDisc 2 protected CDs, the Toshiba drive is very fast in both tests. Waitec SfinX 16 was really slow and finished the task in 1 hour.

- LaserLock v.2 Results

Again in the LaserLock v.2 test, the Toshiba drive was faster than the Waitec, especially in the backup disc test.

- SecuROM Results

It took less than 3 minutes for both drives to finish the SecuROM v.2 test. The WAITEC SFINX16 can only read 16Bytes of SubChannel data, and not full 96Bytes (CD+G). The differences in the performance cannot be clearly made out and both drives are fast.
