    Just a note on that link if I may. I also gave it out to a member today and found that the free version actually has an expiration date of 1/3/2005 on it. He said he downloaded it but it would not work.

    What else is available to check burned discs. I tried dvdinfopro with no luck also.

    You can use nero to check for block errors and read speed or there are some tools for specific dvdrw manufactures eg: kprobe for Lite-on drives.

    Well that's the last time I listen to someone without checking for myself. After what [bold]saugmon[/bold] just said in his post I did the same and downloaded it and yes, it works just fine. Thanks Saugmon for letting me/us know! :)

    And it's a pretty sweet program too!

    DVD Decrypter will also check your disk for errors.

    Hey scuba bud, I downloaded dvdinfopro to check for errors on my kyhpermedia +8x burner in my backup pc. I downloaded it last week on my main pc to scan some sony +1-8 sony and had 0 errors. Seems like that free version does not last very long.The first few times i downloaded it was to check my mfg code. I now realize how much more this program has to offer.

    I have 1 apex stand alone that will not play that khpermedia burn.I know the laser is just a hair different because I can reburn those k-h backkups onto either my benq or cyberhome recorder and that apex will play them perfect,go figure.

    I want to scan one of my SAW backups from the K-h burner,that is in my backup pc. Later
