CD read speed

Is there software that can allow me to test the read speed of a CD-ROM drive?

Thank you,
Radomir Jordanovic

Download Nero CD Speed.  It's got all sorts of benchmarks and pretty graphs and stuff.

http://www.cdspeed2000.com/  -- go to the download link right on that page, or click on "sitemap" to get to the FAQ.

With the SisoftSandra Software, can you Benchmark almost all components of your PC - also the speed of your cd-drive

Whatever your CD says it can do, or whatever it does, is irrelevant to a degree. And here I'm assuming you wish to maximise your CD.

Ensuring the DMA is set up correctly is a good starter, follow this link @MSOFT:

   http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hwdev/tech/storage/ide-dma.mspx

It's for XP, but trawl around the site for other OS's    (Linux,BEOS,Mac, Spectrum etc excepted)

addendum - and 95 now :.,

I'd like to know what to use when diagnosing computers.  So far, SisoftSandra seems great.  Is there anything that can find the product number of the drive and tell me the speed without first having the drive read a disk?

Thank you,

Aida32 will tell you all that information and more.

Oh, good!  I'll look into that now.

Oh, yes.  I already have both Sandra and AIDA32.  I was never aware, however, that they test drive speed.  How weird.

You could always look at the manfr's specs :-/

Ah, yes.  The point is that sometimes I may not have the manufacturer's retail box.  Also, there are a lot of blank CD-ROM drives.  Finally, sometimes I cannot open a case due to a significant shortage of screwdrivers.

I have correctly identified a blank Pioneer 16×CD-ROM drive using Sandra and AIDA32.  Thank you all!
