libCDio from GNU

offers (at least one) tool that can query (report) stats status state of optical media (CD-Rs, DVD+Rs)

libcdio-utils: sample applications based on the CDIO libraries

    This package contains a collection of small libcdio-based tools:
     * cd-drive show CD-ROM drive characteristics
     * cd-info show information about a CD or CD-image
     * cd-paranoia an audio CD ripper
     * cd-read read information from a CD or CD-image
     * cdda-player a simple curses-based audio CD player
     * iso-info show information about an ISO 9660 image
     * iso-read read portions of an ISO 9660 image
     * mmc-tool issue low-level commands to a CD drive

source

which, in turn [1]


cd-info may need --dvd switch for DVD R media, of course. (never cd-rs, I assume)


others include

cdrwtool -d -i

dvd+rw-mediainfo

cdrecord ... -minfo , -msinfo , -toc switches (and maybe -atip)

cdrdao disk-info and cdrdao msinfo


xorriso

xorriso -devices

xorriso -indev /dev/sr0 -pvd_info

"pvd" stands for Primary Volume Descriptor, which reports information (metadata) about the ISO 9660 filesystem volume (contents of the data track). (the beginning/top thereof)

xorriso -indev /dev/sr0 -toc

"toc" is Table of Contents, which is overhead for teh disc, as a whole, (equivalent to a partition table) -- point: information (data) about the sessions (and tracks) on the disc.


Windows

ImgBurn

ImgBurn has Read and Verify modes. It gives details stats figures

except what Windows Explorer gives (which corresponds to cdrecord -minfo (msinfo mode too?) for "Free:" free/unallocated space (capacity)
