Windows Media Player says there is no disk in my computer's DVD player, but there is

I burned video files from my hard drive. I used a DVD+R in my Sony DRX-830U burner. I can play the video files in my Sony burner using Windows Media Player. When I placed the DVD+R in my computer's DVD player Windows Media Player says there is no disk in the drive.

I used ImgBurn software to burn the video files.

What is going on with Microsoft Media Player saying that there is no disk in the computer's DVD player? Do I need mpeg-2; and, if so, where is the best place to get it?

Please help.

Thank you

Very old.
It probably doesn't recognise the media.
Look for a firmware update. It may help but I doubt it. Worth a try though.

There is firmware and you can't update the CD-ROM so try to udate you motherboard bios see if that works. Also may be is the time for retirement of your computer and replacement with new one since they are so cheap these days.
