DAT > hard disk error checker?

Hi,

Is there a way to check a wav file for diginoise/errors without listening to it all?

Now that I have a new computer (a mac), I am starting to copy about 1000 hours of live music from DAT to hard disk. These tapes are 7+ yrs old, so I'm wondering of there is going to be degradation and so on. But listening as I go, they seem good except for a couple tapes.

But I don't have time to listen to every minute. Any ideas for me? I can boot to Vista if I need a Windows utility.

Thanks!

Re: DAT > hard disk error checker?

As far as I know there is no easy way to check for errors besides listening to the actual wave file or simply looking for spikes in the wav form if the errors can be seen (pops etc). I am in the process of archiving my DATs to harddisc as well and could also use something that would detect the errors since I don't have time to listen to hundreds of hours of files.

Thanks for the reply. I don't mind listening, but a error detector utility would have saved us some time.
