At work we have a few computers running Windows7, mine being one of them. We are a small software company and periodically we each have to burn cds for customers. For those of us running Windows7 we use the built in CD burning software in Windows Explorer. What I am wanting to know is if there is an option anywhere to have Windows Explorer verify a cd after it has been burned. I'm not very familiar with Windows7 yet and I haven't been able to find any settings for this piece of the OS.

I don't believe the built-in CD burner in Win7 will do that, but some alternate CD burning software might.

basically any 3rd party software will have a verification function....of course, a really quick method would be to just pop the disk back in and see if it works

Yeah, that's what we do, and it's a fairly quick install to really confirm, but from our experience if it passes the software verification then it's a good disc. I was hoping to get Windows to do that as well to speed things up.
