The Nero Disc Speed 5.4.24.100 is a typical CD-ROM/DVD utility benchmark that can even test the most important and available features of the user’s CD-ROM/DVD drive. The Nero Disc Speed 5.4.24.100 tests include the transfer rate, CPU usage, DAE quality, Spinup/Spin down time, burst rate, seek times, etc. The Nero Disc Speed 5.4.24.100 has also an additional feature that has a functionality to evenly check the CD quality for media based applications. There are certain new features added in the new Nero Disc Speed 5.4.24.100 release with a full change log available. These have added and additional tool tips and facility to extend the available feature. There are many minor improvements made in the existing feature and version and the bugs are usually fixed instantly. The transfer rate, burst rate and other such features are required in order to test the Nero Disc Speed 5.4.24.100 version of software. On these tests, the software can be judged and hence used for betterment.

Updating my earlier review: 5 stars. This is the best cd/dvd/bd read error reporting software out there in terms of features, support for various drives and tweakability. Other alternatives include kProbe, Plextools Pro and PxScan, but they are manufacturer specific.

NB! You must learn how to interpret the results as they will not directly tell you the quality of the disc/burn. The software only reports what the drive sees (i.e. read errors).

The best from the best. It still has some minor niggles here and there, but this is an indispensable tool for those who know how to use it properly.

I see there is a little confusion about what the test mean so here is a quick look at them and a couple of tips.

The benchmark test is most useful for comparing the performance between different burners which is something most folks will rarely or never do. It is still useful as a general test to check the condition of your burner. If it goes through the benchmark without stalling or throwing up an error message you can be reasonably confident your burner is still in good mechanical order. Use a clean unscratched commercially pressed data disc for this test.

The disc quality test examines the quality of a burnt disc and a good rule of thumb is a score of 80 or higher is acceptable and a score of 95 or higher is an archival quality burn.

If the score of the disc quality test is below 80 or the test exhibited any odd behaviour open the scandisc tab and run the read test. Any files which failed to burn or are damaged will be listed highlighted in red or yellow at the end of the test with good files highlighted in green.

DAE test tests the ability of your burner to "rip" audio files and it is highly recommend that you read the help file before proceeding.

The over burning test is self explanatory.

This little tutorial is far from complete or authoritive but it should be enough for someone to get started quickly with this program.

It's cool, but I don't know how I would actually need this program, or how to use the data it gives you.
