anyway to check the integrity of an original xbox disc?

I bought a used xbox game, I wanted to verify it works if possible (beyond starting it on my x360, which I've checked). I have a x360 and PC with a DVD drive at my disposal

Look at the bottom of the disc, look for scratches, fingerprints, haze, cracks.

Also hold the disc up to a strong light source and look for any pin holes. If they exist, the data in those sectors is gone forever.

As for whether or not the game will work on the 360, first you need an official hard drive, without one the original XBox games won't run at all.

Then check this list....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

If the game you want to run is not on that list, odds are it won't work. But try it anyways, there's lots of games not on that list at all.
