4. CloneCD Reading Tests

BTC 5224IM IDE CD-RW RECORDER - Page 4

CloneCD Reading Tests

- Procedure

We used CloneCD and 3 original CDs - Serious Sam 2 (SafeDisc 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(s) reading/writing features as CloneCD reports:

- PSX Pressed Media

We ripped the image to the HD with CloneCD using the default settings. The drive needs only 52secs to finish the task, but the CyberDrive and Asus drives are faster by a few seconds.

- SafeDisc v.2 Results

BTC 5224IM finished the pressed disc reading in 14 minutes and the backup one in 16 minutes. The performance is average since the CyberDrive and Asus drives were significantly faster in the same tasks.

- SecuROM v.2 Results

All drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The duration of the process for the BTC drive was only 2:30 minutes, but again, the Asus and CyberDrive drives are faster.
