blank media test?

I have a mix of CD-R, DVD-R AND DVD-RW media. Some appear to have been damaged, perhaps by an interrupted write?
Is there a way or software to test the disks other then by trial and error? (putting the disks one by one in the drive, till I find one that works..)
Explorer doesn't tell me whats wrong but shows the disk as full? (no free space)
I understand that only RW disks have to be formatted? The others should work straight out of the box?
Thanks for help.

CD speed has some options that might help a bit.

Quality testing of media is covered here. Your drive must be compatible with error reporting software, though.

"The others should work straight out of the box"
Yes.
