DVD/CD what speed?

  Sirpad 09:51 23 Feb 2006

How can tell for sure what speed my DVD/CD drive burns/rewrite/reads at? The spec says 48x/32x/48x/16x CDRW/DVD-ROM combo drive but I'd like to verify this.

Is there a tool out there that would diagnose this?

If you are useing something like Nero, open prog
select extras, select control drive speed...

48X = Write
32X = Rewrite
48X = Read
16X = DVD write

opps Sorry,,, 16X is the DVD Read Speed

Thanks guys.........I don't have Nero and they aren't offering their trial Download of version 6 at the moment. Is SONIC any use? This came with my PC (Dell).

Okay so I've done some homework and since they are not offering the trial version of Nero (version 6) right now I looked at Deepburner and it appears to be adequate and cheaper.

Any thoughts out there about Nero V Deepburner?
