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 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. Plextor PX-S2410TU needed 147 seconds to finish the task, while the INcoder drive was 25 seconds faster.
- SafeDisc v.2 Results
The PX-2410TU needed approximately 35min to finish the task. The performance is not the very high but the drive is faster than INcoder TS24C-C1.
- 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). 4:20 minutes were enough for the Plextor drive to make the image file to the hard disk. The INcoder is slightly slower.
