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.
