Nero's CD Speed burn tests are done twice, once with a CD-R disc rated to 1x-52x burn speed, and again with a CD-RW rated to 4x-32x. Each disc was test with the same files, about 640MB in size. This test is performed by simply placing blank recording media into the burner and running CD Speed. The software will detect if it is CD-R or CD-R/W media and run the appropriate tests.

CD Speed can also read DVD-ROM discs, showing you maximum transfer speeds, access times and CPU utilization. The DVD data disc has about 3.78GB of data on it and is a retail DVD-ROM disc, not a recordable DVD.

The AOpen DSW1812P is pretty darn quick at reading media... that much is for certain. Average read speed sits at 11x for DVD-ROMs, access times are little higher than the norm.
