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. 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's reading/writing capabilities as reported by CloneCD:
- PSX Pressed Media
For this test we used the PSX game 'NBA Jam Extreme' and we ripped the image to the HD with CloneCD. Philips JR32RWDV needed 149 seconds to finish the task, while the INcoder drive was significantly faster.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
The Philips JR32RWDV needed approximately 1:10 min to finish the task. The performance is low and the INcoder drive is faster.
- SecuROM Results
Both drives can read SubChannel data from Data/Audio tracks, but the Philips drive does not support 96 bytes of Subchannel data (CD+G). 3:32 minutes were enough for the drive to make the image file to the hard disk.
