    Get nero CD-DVD speed from http://www.cdspeed2000.com/ and run the "scandisc" test, that's probably the best you're going to get...

    I do find though that sometimes after several rewrites a disc can go a bit funny... a full reformat usually fixes the problem (instead of quick erase)
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    If you need to repair surface scuff, scratches and corrupt files, then try the free cd recovery toolbox...
