2. CD reading tests
For our CD transfer rate tests, we used the Nero CD-Speed utility and a set of data and audio CD-R/RW/ROM. The drive can read CD media at a maximum speed of 32X. The results of another BD-ROM drive, the Pioneer BDC-202, have been included in the charts for comparison.
For each CDSpeed graph, you can click on the image to see the complete screenshot of the software, including the measuring results.
