Could be the copy protection on the CD not being read properly by the drive. Is it an old drive? I had the same issues a few years ago with copy protection.

depending on age of laptop perphaps the type of dvd player. my old lappy won't read dvd+r's, worth having a look at the centre of the dvd and finding one of a similar +- type and checking that can be read
