Default file compare

I just tried to burn some files to a blu-ray disc and during data verification Nero gave me a burn failed message, but when I open the disc in windows explorer it shows all the files are there. Can someone point me to some free software to compare the burned files to the originals to see if anything had been corrupted during the burn? I don't wanna waste another BD on this if I don't have to.

You can download my MD5Hash program from here:

http://www.favessoft.com/downloads.html

Just drag & drop files onto it. If the MD5Sums are the same, the files are the same. I'm not a math wiz but supposedly the odds of an accidental match are in the billions to one or something. (I didn't write the hash routine. Just the rest of the program around it.)

You're welcome. You can get programs that do multiple checksums on the download sites. But MD5 is pretty much still the standard. If I download a file and the site has the MD5 sum next to it, I can just right click on it to calculate it, then look at the string on the site page to see if it's the same. Pretty convenient.

Also I compiled a small program to add and remove it from the Explorer Context Menu. You don't need to have AutoIt3 on your system anymore. I just combined both AutoIt3 scripts into one compiled program.
