Default software that detects errors?

I'm considering purchasing an external blu ray drive. My pc only has a dvd drive. I was wondering if there is a software that will detect errors on the blu ray discs? For example if a disc is scratched, is there a program that be used to detect if the disc will have errors instead of having to watch everything on the disc to find out.

VSO Inspector or DVDInfoPro do a good job checking possible surface & CRC read errors on CD/DVD/Blu-ray/UHD discs... depending on what disc formats your PC drive is capable of reading.

VSO Inspector is freeware, and perfectly accurate with its results. DVDInfoPro is paid software, but has a detailed sector graph scan where you can visually tell exactly where the errors occur on a disc and/or on which layers.

Either program will let you know if a disc has any read errors on the drive you're checking the discs on... but that doesn't necessarily mean a different drive won't encounter problems reading the same disc.

I don't believe so, even so more with scuffs, scratches, or smudges on discs. For a program suite to detect those type of things, it must be command-proof, sector-guided, and programmable within prior operating systems like Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows XP.

Bumping this thread. I'm looking for a Mac OS compatible program that can detect errors/bad sectors etc. on Blu-ray discs. I used IMGburn on PCin the past, but there seems to be no Macintosh equivalent.

I'd be surprised if there is anything on the Mac. Apple turned its back on optical media a while ago, and they also don't seem to care about modern OSs running older software.

This has nothing to do with the topic of this thread.
