How to write data on DVD which allows different DVD Readers to Read

Hi

I have a Dell GX270 with a NEC DVD +RW ND-1100A Drive, I'm using the OEM software Roxio Easy CD Creator Version 5.3.5.10 to write my data, the CDs I use are created by imation they are DVD+RW and have 2 hours video 4.7gb data.  Once I write the data, if I try to read it on my Dell D600 Laptop nothing shows up, I also tried a Compaq EVO800 with DVD still nothing.  One thing I noticed is that I can't finalise the CD (its grayed out) inside Roxio, I also tried Nero and had the same thing, I suppose its because its a RW, should I try a DVD +R, does anyone know what the correct process should be, I'm new to writing DVDs so any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

+R is deprecated, -R is the format dujuor.

I think that's right on the money, but.... if you don't finalize the disk it won't be readable in any other DVD-ROM station and you said you can't finalize the disk so I think you're out of luck on this one.

Upgrade to Roxio Easy CD Creator 6 Platinum, its well worth the coin, and has an inbult "DVD Builder" which makes building DVD's a piece of cake.
I should be a saleman for Roxio as this software (Version 6) is a wonderful, did I mention Awesome?, piece of software.
You can create, CD's, DVD's, VCD's and SVCD's with ease with this software. Truly great!!!
Need I say more?? Buy it today and your problem will be solved!!
