INcoder TS24C-C1 portable CD-RW/DVD drive - Page 6
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 time of the drives. We also tested the reading performance with backups of the original CDs, since the reading speed varies between original and backup media. The following pictures show the drive reading/writing capabilities 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. INcoder TS24C-C1 needed 122 seconds to finish the task, while the Plextor drive was 17 seconds faster.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
The TS24C-C1 needed approximately an hour to finish the task. The performance is low and the Plextor drive is faster.
- LaserLock v.2 Results
With the LaserLock v.2 protected disc, the drive finished after 20 minutes. This time the Plextor drive is slower.
- 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). 4:50 minutes were enough for the drive to make the image file to the hard disk. The Plextor PX-208T is slightly faster.
