DVD not detected

Specs: Windows XP Pro, Quad-core 2.33GHz/2Gb
I backed-up a movie onto a blank DVD+R 8x
disc and it works absolutely fine in my DVD
machine (menus and all). However when the
DVD is placed in my PC (about 6 months old)
the PC can't seem to read it, I can hear the
optical drive almost struggling to do
something. Eventually (10mins or so later)
Windows shows that there is absolutely
nothing on the disc. I have tried the DVD in 2
other computers (about 8 yrs old (XP Home)
and 5 yrs old (XP Pro)) and got the exact
same result - struggling optical drive and
eventually, no result. It is not a train-smash if
the copied DVD doesn't work, but I'd like to
know if there is any reason for this anomaly.
All other backed-up DVD's (different movies)
have and still work perfectly. Does anyone
know of a possible reason? Thanx a ton.

If other DVD (copies) work, could it be a disk issue (DVD+R vs. DVD-R)?

I suppose it's possible. The thing is, all copies are on DVD+R
media and how come does the disc work in a DVD player
machine. I could understand it being the other way around, the
disc having a problem with the machine and not the PC, but in
this case the PC's have got the problem (or the disc, as you
rightly say).
