CloneCD Reading Tests
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 time of the drives. The following pictures show the drive reading/writing capabilities as CloneCD reports them:
- PSX Pressed Media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to the HD with CloneCD. Duet LSC-24081 needed more time than expected to finish the task. The 352sec needed is less than the average performance we usually get from the drives. The INcoder TS24C-C1 is faster and finished in 122sec.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
Contrary to the PSX reading test, the SafeDisc v2.0 protected disc was read faster than the INcoder drive. The Duet LSC-24081 finished the tasks in approximately 12min .
- SecuROM Results
Both drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks, but the TS24C-C1 does not support 96 bytes of Subchannel data (CD+G). 4:16 minutes were enough for the drive to make the image file to the hard disk. The average reading speed is 17.1x, and the Incoder drive is slightly slower in this case.
