Nero cd-speed result

if i have a 8x disc that shows 6.2 on nero cd-speed…does this indicate the maximum burn speed even though nero shows a burn option of 12x…any help…nec 3500 drive

also would this indicate to you that i have really crappy media

Are you refering to reading or writing?

If reading it is because the drive reads faster the closer it comes to the rim of the disc, as the drive rotates with an approx. constant angular velocity or RPM.

As for writing, I don’t know - the 3500 is trying to be clever and adjust the burn speed to the media, but how that will show up in the curve I don’t know. Is the speed constant throughout the disc?
