How to test a blu ray movie

I know the short answer: watch or listen to it.

I have money ATM, I don't know for how long so I purchased a bunch of BD (Blu-ray Disc) which I estimate will last me 6-12 months. Most of those movies I already seen however it was a while back and it's a renew for me ; so I don't want to waste the "surprise" while testing it the easy way.

I'd like to find a software that will check those BD for skips AKA I/O errors AKA deep scratches. A way I could see it if making a checksum of it comparing it to a library however I'm skeptic about this since there's different releases for some (many) titles. The alternative, and more complicated I'm figuring, is for some algorithm to read the video & sound (perhaps separately) that would have a library of common faulty behaviors ; that wouldn't be as perfect as checksum but the advantage is I could figure how many and how much damage there's on discs.

Thanks you kindly for your help

  1. Brand new disks, if they don't work, return them.

    You are way way over-thinking this.

    If you want to make sure the disks are OK, copy them to your hard-drive, if it copies with no problems, no disk errors.
