Or simply there is an incompatibilty between the disk (and it's surface)
and the laser in the dvd reader.

I have at least 15/20 dvds burned on a machine, perfectly working on 4
of the 5 pc i have access to and that simply do not get recorgnized by
the 5th.

In the m$ world, btw, there are a number of utilities which can check
out the number of "read errors" or "bad crc", but they only refer to the
Orange books & similar about the standard of disk type. They not
guarrantee you'll see the file ...
