How to build a Blank Optical Disk Media Detector with Raspberry Pi? ?
I have a ton of blank CD/DVDs that are mixed together in spindles. Some of them are obviously easy to tell what is blank and not, but some are hard to tell.
I was wondering if there was a way to build a Raspberry Pi Project where I hook up a USB DVD drive and a monitor (or a 16x2 LCD Screen) and I insert a disc and it says "blank" or "not blank"? I do not need it to tell me what is on the disc, just need to know blank or not blank in a short time.
I am new to programming RPi's (I have basically used it as an emulation station), so I was wondering how to program/do this project?
I have a RPi Zero, 2, and 4.
