Nero DiscSpeed

What is Nero DiscSpeed?

Nero DiscSpeed is a freeware utility that is included in most Nero multimedia suite editions, and while it does not burn or rip a CD in itself, it provides a useful set of information to the user. Such applications are called benchmarking programs. DiscSpeed benchmarks, or tells you the optimal performance of a certain hardware device on your computer, by running various tests on it to simulate real-life applications; in this case, DiscSpeed benchmarks your CD-ROM drive to see how it holds up in processes that Nero usually utilizes (such as transferring between, burning to, and ripping from media storage discs).

DiscSpeed offers a lot of useful information, but with the wealth of data gathered from a DiscSpeed benchmarking test you may have to consult Google with the terms presented; however, the operation of the tests themselves are fairly simple, often taking only a few clicks and a little reading to initiate.

Keep in mind that DiscSpeed is just a benchmarking application and not a troubleshooter, so if you have problems with your drive DiscSpeed will not solve them, only tell you about your device’s performance (which could drop in case the drive really has a problem).
