A friend gave me some audio books that I thought I would post. They are not ones I am going to listen to. I was wondering if any of you would recommend what types of things you would check before posting. Just listen to a few minutes of a sample CD? Look for visible scratches? Anything else?

Thank you for the assistance.

Ugh. I'd hate posting a set of cds I hadn't listened to. You've already mentioned the obvious things - the only thing I might do is trust that the sendee is honest and tell them that you were given the cds, and you'll still refund the credits later if the cds don't play.

If they were ones your friend has listened to her/himself, I'd post them and refund a credit if someone wrote later telling you of a problem. Don't invite trouble.

If the CDS don't have scratches then they're probably just fine.  Maybe pop them in and listen to a bit here and there to make sure.  If they have scratches there's no way to tell without listening to them. So you can listen or send them out and be prepared to refund a credit if someone complains. 

I love audios-feel free to PM with some titles if you want to try and save on shipping.

Thank you everyone. I will listen to a few minutes and then post.
