Does anyone know if it's possible to detect errors/defects on blank or burned CDs and DVDs, using an Amiga?
For magnetic medias, there are tools for this job like HDInstTools for checking an unformatted HD and DiskSalv/DiskValid/SFSCheck for checking FFS/PFS/SFS partitions.
If there aren't any tools for optical medias, is there another method that will allow me to do this?

Not that this will actually help but if something in the day was vital to me I'd copy the entire contents to a harddrive partition... something won't copy if it has a read/write error...

In the instance it is a music cd or movie dvd... simply play the media through...

In my experience errors if any are very rare usually it is a case of burning too quickly or a buggy setup...

btw, do not use cheap media that is a risk you go with...
