CyberDrive CW099D CD-RW

4. CloneCD Reading Tests

CyberDrive CW099D IDE CD-RW - Page 4

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 show the drive(s) 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 ASUS and CyberDrive recorders gave exactly the same time results (43 secs).

- SafeDisc v.2 Results

Although the CW099D gave an average performance, it is the faster drive in the test with SafeDisc 2 protected discs.

- LaserLock v.2 Results

With LaserLock 2 protected discs, the drive is very slow. It needs 1hour and 47mins to finish the task with the pressed media, and only (?) 29mins for the CD-R backup.

- SecuROM v.2 Results

All drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The ASUS CRW5224 was the faster drive. The CW099D got the third place with the original disc and the first with the CD-R backup. With the pressed media, the drive reported reading errors, slowing down the reading process, and this is worrying since there aren't any actual bad sectors in SecuROM2 protected discs.
