The drive's writing performance was the same for both formats. The recorder started writing at 4.13X and reached a maximum value of 8.28X, with an average speed of 6.79X.

We burned 4315MB of data on various DVD±R, DVD±RW media. We used the maximum allowed writing speed for each disc.

- DVD Overburning Tests

Using Nero CD-DVD Speed, we tested if the NEC ND-2510A can overburn using DVD+R and DVD-R media. Unfortunately, the drive does not support overburning, giving the following error with all inserted media.

  • DVD-R media

  • DVD+R media

- DVD+MRW Tests

The NEC ND-2510A does not support Mount Rainier.
