    This could be a possibility -

    "Your drive can not handle this media. Confirmed by the fact that a
    different burn application causes the same drive error. In general, Sony
    DRU xxx are quiet bad for media compatibility.The problem is with the
    drive,as you can't fix that,try different media."

    what did you burn? was it a divx/xvid (.avi)? was it a home video? if so, is it .dv ? let us know what the format of the original file was, if you converted it or not and what type of dvd player your home player is..

    did you make sure you burnt it to DVD format, you have to make sure you encode in the right format to make it play in DVD players

    Here is most likely the problem. You probably know that there are DVD-Rs as well as DVD+Rs. Your DVD player may not be able to play the particular media you burned. Some players play everything, and others support very few media types. Check it at:
