SecuRom Profile (Read & Write)
[ul][li]PleXCombo PX-280U - fails (cannot read SC data)
[/li][li]PleXCombo PX-320A - works
[/li][li]Plextor PX-W4012A - works
[/li][li]Plextor PX-W4012U - works
[/li][li]Lite-On LTR-48125W - fails
[/li][li]Mitsumi CR-480ATE - works
[/li][li]TEAC CD-W540E - works[/ul]I know this doesn’t add anything new to conclusions we already made on our CloneCD forum but this should answer the question “Can Plextor copy the new SecuRom version?” When the NWN game is updated to v1.21 via a patch none of the back-ups seem to work. I haven’t tested this (yet). Want more tests, want more information? Please post below! When reading the SubChannel Data from the NWN disc, the Plextor drives are limited to about 8X reading.
I did not test how the Lite-On performs when writing an image file created by a different drive like a Plextor. In the CloneCD forum you can find loads more information on this including settings for a custom Profile. For now I think it’s safe to say the Plextor drives work well with the normal/old SecuRom Profile…
