None of our HL-DT-ST drives are able to check for quality on discs.
Some give an SCSi error, others finish instantly without scanning.
One exception: BE14NU40 does scan C2 errors on a CD. But stops at unreadable sectors instead of continuing to scan and slows down on damage, which means, that it handles the C1/C2 test like a normal data read, where the reading light does blink, unlike other disc drives on a quality test. (SCSi hexadecimal status codes 03/11/00 or 03/11/05.).
