8. Protected Disc Tests
- Reading Tests
To create the image of the various protected titles to the hard disk, we used the latest version of Alcohol 120% software and the appropriate settings, according to the protection type of the inserted discs. Below you can see the duration of each process as well as the transfer rate in each case.
|Game Title||Protection Scheme||Drive||Duration||Reading speed|
|PSX "NBA Jam Extreme"||Lybcrypt||LG||00:44min||2054 sectors/sec|
|LiteOn||00:48 min||1883 sectors/sec|
|Serious Sam The Second Encounter v1.07||SafeDisc v.2.60.052||LG||16:54 min||331 sectors/sec|
|LiteOn||10:10 min||550 sectors/sec|
|VRally II||SecuROM v.2||LG||02:36min||2218 sectors/sec|
Safedisc protection seems to be present the biggest problem for both the LG and the LiteOn drives. Their performance however was good with the other two protection schemes.
