The capability exists to check media data integrity on most versions of BibleWorks. (Unhappily, this capability does not exist for BibleWorks 7 media.)

If your BibleWorks medium is a USB flash drive (i.e. for BibleWorks 10 and later), use the checking procedure here.

For CD and DVD media, proceed as follows: (When these instructions say Enter something, press Enter after you've typed that thing.)

1.  Double-click on the following:
         http://www.bibleworks.com/support/et7br/BWCheckDisc.zip
or enter it into an Internet browser such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox.

2.  When a dialog box pops up asking what you want to do, click on Open.

3.  In the window that then opens, double-click on BWCheckDisc.exe.

4.  Insert the media to be tested into the computer and click the button that says "Check BibleWorks CD/DVD Now."  The checking process may take several minutes, but ongoing status of the checking will be reported in the upper right of the box.

5.  If an error condition is reported, the disk may be defective.
