Hey. Your boss could afford a BD burner two
years ago ! It must have cost a little fortune. ;)
You could combine a test of growisofs auto-format
with the 10 mm scratch test. If it formats then
the scratch will become illustrative.
If it does not format, then you will test how bad
a 10 mm scratch is with a BD-R that has no Defect
So give it a double dozen GB of data to eat.
Have a nice day :)
