what format disc did you use DVD-RW?

Can you view the disc on your laptop?

Have you got a DVD-ROM?

Do you have the correct software to view the DVD?

I'm presuming you have XP . Open windows media player , hover mouse over 'Library' tab , right click and highlight 'play' , is the option ' DVD,VCD or CD Audio' in black or greyed out ?

If it is greyed out then you may need to install or update the DVD decoder on your PC.

The sonic software you have is good enough. The problem i feel is elsewhere related.

Fully describe the process you have followed to create the disk, this will help determine where the problem is.
