Rewritable optical disks (CD and DVD) can often give problems. Probably best if you transfer the contents to a DVD+R.

As Pineman100 says - many DVD players are not specified to play DVD RW disks. Their reflectivity is quite different to DVD R disks.

As above have said.

Also if using +R & +RW dvd's you might need to change the Book/Bit Type setting (I have to with an old Toshiba DVD Player) by changing them to DVD-Rom's,

Read this, BookType BitSetting FAQ click here But it depends on your Make of DVD Writer.
