4. CD Error Correction Tests

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD 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 times of the drive. 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 reading/writing features as CloneCD reports:

- PSX Pressed Media

For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to the HD with CloneCD. The EHW-4048U needed 209secs to finish the task, much slower than the performance of the PX-W4012U, which gave the best performance.

- SafeDisc v.2 Results

The AOpen EHW-4048U was very slow with the SafeDisc 2 discs. The main reason is that the drive locked at the 4X reading speed after it skipped all the bad sectors. Note that when we used another software, like Alcohol 120%, the same task was performed at almost full speed giving of course a much lower reading time. The faster drive in this test comes from YAMAHA.

- LaserLock v.2 Results

The AOpen EHW-4048U performed better with the original LaserLock v.2 disc and got the first place, but was slower with the backup disc.

- SecuROM v.2 Results

All drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The faster drive comes from YAMAHA with 2217.85Kb/s. The AOpen EHW-4048U gets the third place with 1685.13Kb/s.
