burned DVDs won't play in dvd player

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ! I have been burning movies on my desktop computer for years by using ConvertXtoDVD 3 and media type DVD+RW. They play fine on my computer, laptop and DVD player. I just bought a New laptop and I am using the same software and media to burn dvd movies, but now they will not play on my DVD play. When I put the dvd in the player, it just spins and spins and spins then says "unknown disc". What is my new laptop doing to the dvd discs that my desk top wasn't doing ??? It's driving me crazy. Someone please help me. Thank you. Also, I even tried Nero 7 and still the same problem. New Laptop has Vista. Also, I have already tried slowing the speed to 4x, no luck. If I use my desktop and the same software and same DVD+RWs, they will play just fine in my DVD player, so the problem is not the media or software. What can it be ?? It must have something to do with my NEW laptop. Please help !!

Try a different brand of disc. It may be the burner just doesn't like that brand.

Also, some DVD players have issues with playing DVD-R and DVD-RW disks.

Hi - The DVD+RW work in my DVD player only when I burn movies from my desktop computer. But when use the same DVD+RW and burn them from my new laptop, they do not play in my DVD player. Is the DVD burner on my new laptop doing something to the DVD discs that are making them unreadable ?

I have had a similar problem - everything if fine on my older laptop but discs copied on my new pc using same software just will not work on my dvd player. They do work on my my computer.
I have decided after a lot of time and effort that the problem is Nero. I don't know why but sometimes it just does not copy discs that will run in a dvd player.
From now on I am an ImgBurn fan.
It is easy to use, quick and burns perfect copies every time.
If you use DVD Shrink then ImgBurn is the only way to go.
