I got a bluray set in the mail in a bubble mailer from Amazon and both discs were loose, and one of them scratched.
I don't really have the time to sit and watch it all to make sure the disk is free from errors.

I remember there was a trick to tell if DVD data was corrupted by copying a certain file from it to your PC desktop to see if the transfer completed successfully. If it did, then the disk was ok.

There are a lot of files on a bluray in comparison. Does this method work for a bluray disk? Are there any other ways? I can't seem to find out much by googling.

I would just return it, but I'm loathe to go through the process knowing that Amazon will just send the item again in an envelope and the replacement will probably get banged up in transit too.

BDs have much more rigorous scratch protection than DVDs, so it is less likely the disk is damaged enough to hinder playback.
