Polaroid BurnMAX48 beats Safedisc 2.5

I’m happy to report that the Polaroid BurnMAX48 beat Safedisc 2.5.x (Command& Conquer Renegade).
I used the CloneCD 4 game profileSafedisc 2.5.x (NO AWS). I used the Polaroid as reader and
was surprised at my read times. Disc 1 took 8:30 while Disc 2 took 8:45. I toggled with the
CloneCD read settings to see if I could get a little faster read time(s) but no luck there.
I installed from backups, rather from the original cd and the game plays just fine. Here is a
little more info about the PolaroidBurnMAX48 drive

I hope to get a chance to copy Safedisc 2.8.x after Christmas (The Sims Unleashed)
Any links to hardware testing about this drive would be deeply appreciated :smiley:

Always a great thing to here. You were able to copy C&C Renegade because you have a 2-sheep burner. Safedisc 2.5x is no problem for any two sheep burner.

a look at the CloneCD Help / Supported Writers would have been enough. :smiley:

It is a good notice; that writer has two sheeps. I have a friend that is selling the 40x model.


Polaroid is LiteOn afaik

Just curious if the Polaroid Safedisc read times (Safedisc 2.5.x) are equivilent to the LiteON 48x using CloneCD (C&C Renegade)?

They will certainly not be completely equivalent.

EDIT I was informed that they are BTC :Z
