CloneCD Reading Tests
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 drive is very fast and needs only 43 secs to finish the task.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
The ASUS CRW5224 has an average performance but it is much faster from the two competitors of the test. The SD2 disc was read in only 6mins.
- LaserLock v.2 Results
The ASUS CRW5224 still takes the lead with LaserLock 2 protected discs.
- SecuROM v.2 Results
All drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks. The ASUS CRW5224 completed this test faster than the other drives, the SONY CRX220E1 comes second and the AOpen CRW5224 follows with a lower performance.
