Data CD Reading Tests

- Pressed CD results (Click for CDSpeed results)

The reading speed of Memorex True-8x is 40x for the cd media, according to the manufacturer. This was confirmed after the end of the reading process. The software we used, Nero CDSpeed v2.11, reported 31.66x average reading speed and 41.91x ending speed. The pressed disc was read accurately, under CAV mode.

The above results were taken from the reading process of a pressed disc. The graph shows the seek times of Memorex True-8x in comparison with Pioneer and Nec. Memorex and Pioneer returned similar results regarding Random and 1/3 seek times, while both drives needed more time than Nec to finish the Full seek test.

- CD-R Media results (Click for CDSpeed results)

In order to present the reading strategy of Memorex True-8x with CD-R media, we made a copy of the previous pressed disc and we run it using NeroCDSpeed. The software reported that the disc was once again read under CAV mode , at the ending speed of 42.3x. From the graph we can conclude that all three drives are almost equal on the reading process of a CD-R media.

Memorex True-8x and Pioneer DVR-107D were slower than Nec ND-2500A in all three modes of the Seek times test. The result was predictable, since both drives returned high Full seek times with the previous tested pressed disc. For the CD-R disc, Memorex and Pioneer needed 300 and 301ms respectively to finish the Full seek test.

- ReWritable Media (Click for CDSpeed results)

For the rewritable reading test we used 32x High Speed rewritable media from Mitsubishi Chemicals.

Memorex read all test CD's under CAV mode including the RW media. The US-RW media from MC was read faster by Nec ND-2500A reporting 34.66x ending speed, while Memorex and Pioneer returned 33.79x and 33.66x ending speeds respectively.
