It may be just that disk, or it maybe that your dvd dosn't support that brand of disk. Take a look at the website of the sware you're using (Nero, etc) there maybe an update which adds support for this disk.

Worst case senario, is that the write, as opposed to the read, laser has been damaged, nowt you can do in this case.

Hope this helps.

check your documentation to find out which type of DVD your drive can use . my drive for instance will read all media but will write to DVD+R and DVD+RW but not to DVD-R or DVD-RW

Am I correct in thinking you have put music (MP3/WMA included) on a DVD and it won't play back on your domestic DVD player?

If so, it's probably because you have to have a newish DVD player to play it on. Until recently only CD-R/RW music could be played on domestic players.

First of all is it a DVD writer not a DVDrom Ddrive?

Second windows will not recognise a blank DVD, you need a DVD burning program such as Nero.
