are u sure ur laptop has a DVD reader?

It sounds as if the disk is still open, which means that you can still put files on but it can only be read by the machine that created it. You will need to put the disk back into that machine and end the disk. That way, it can be read by any machine. I can't advise how do do this as it varies between the different writing packages but if you search the help files of your own writing software then I'm sure you'll find it.

as far as i know, it doesnt matter if the disc is open and you put it in another PC.

its when u leave it open and try playing in a DVD player or with a music CD, a CD Player.

If 'closing' the disk is the problem you could try this... (there is probably a better way but this often works)

Find and install DVD-Decryper
http://www.mrbass.org/dvdrip/

Start the application, insert your 'blank' DVD

Tools->Drive->Close->Disc

Success?
