Do you have nero so you can run the drive speed test feature or do you have burning software with that feature.

Its in the options on the menu screen drive test something like that it will show you the console for it with the speed graphs you need to put a disk in the drive and then it will run its been a while since i have used it myself but its fairly easy to decipher the data from it.
