The burning may have completed, but was the disc finalized to work on other computers. If not you will have to ask your mate (or someone else with Nero) to finalize the disc for you.

i have nero... can i do it then? how do i do that??

I don't use Nero, preferring Roxio EMC, so someone who use Nero will pick this up, but generally speaking re-insert the disc, open the packet writing or disc creation software, and under the burning process look for an option to "finalize disc"
