Nero CD-DVD Speed is very useful to anyone looking to analyze their drive in order to obtain better burning results.
The interface of this application is organized in tabs allowing you to find out information about various parameters: DAE quality, CPU usage, the read speed of a disc and data interface burst speed.
The Disc Quality is one of the most important features offered by Nero CD-DVD Speed. The full scan takes a while, but in the end you get a quality score and two histograms displaying errors. A score over 90 is considered generally good. Expert users will find lots of interesting information in the test results provided by Nero CD-DVD Speed.
Histograms can be easily interpreted after the colors they use. The results produced by the ScanDisc tool are marked in yellow for weak disc areas, red for bad sectors, and green for error-free areas.
This tool is rather recommended to power users, as it lacks documentation and it may be difficult to handle by beginners.
By using Nero CD-DVD Speed, you will be sure that your disc was really burned successfully, instead of having unpleasant surprises when you try to open it.
With an additional effort, you will find out lots of interesting things and manage to stay safe when it comes to disc burning.
