Dear 100 Hour Board,
How fast do CDs spin inside my CD player? Does a DVD spin at at a different speed in a DVD player?
-Don't even think about giving me velocity

A: Dear don't even think about it,
CD's spin 200-500 rpm depending on which track it's on, because it will obviously spin a different speed when it's further out or in.
DVD's spin the same rpm's.
Thanks to http://www.howstuffworks.com/ for all the info. Check it out if you want to know more. They had tons of pages on how both CD's and DVD's work.
