do you mean if the file is readable on the cd? Why not try to copy the file to a tmp dir
or do you want file integrity? For file integrity I think the only way is to compare the file to a checksum/hash

CRC http://www.torry.net/quicksearchd.php?String=crc&Title=Yes
HASH http://www.torry.net/quicksearchd.php?String=hash&Title=Yes

some basic code for checksum:
calculate a simple checksum:  http://www.swissdelphicenter.ch/torry/showcode.php?id=1311
calculate the checksum of a file: http://www.swissdelphicenter.ch/torry/showcode.php?id=324
