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.
