    OK I know of a number of different home system set-up disc's...

    But does anybody sell a DVD Drive (computer or set-top) test disc?

    I have been having trouble with a few disc's that I have purchased of late.. but not all disc's ..and would like some way to test the drive and see if the drive is failing.. if the drive passes the test disc then I would know for sure that it is a bad disc.

    When my player went bad a few months after I bought it, the shop said they used some sort of service disc to test and fix it. I don't know how much they cost but I'd like to have one just for the heck of it. I have a "Service Alignment Disc" for CED videodisc players that has test patterns, stylus tracking tests and other weird stuff.
    Oh yeah, even though I got this disc brand-new, it STILL skips during some of the test sections! (Funnest part to watch is a white circle moving around the screen and a test film of hang-gliding in Germany!)
