XP don't see DVD burned in Vista

Hello,
I've burned DVD using windows explorer in windows Vista.
First I right clicked on DVD and choosen Burn DVD or something like this
Then I've drag and droped files wich I wanted to burn (then progres bar apeered and I waited for 8 mins)
For the end I right clicked on DVD and choosen to Colse this disc.

Everything looks fine I can see that DVD is burned (dieferent color of disc bottom side)

But when I get back home and wanted to use my files from that DVD on XP it's looks like the DVD is empty.
The same is on MAC OS X.

There are two types of burning that Vista supports:  Live File System, and Mastered.  You should use the Mastered format if you expect a greater likelihood that they will be read on earlier versions of Windows:

Yes, I also found this link.
But they say that lfs is working on XP or later.

Ok So I have DVD burned in LFS what can I do?
Is there any chance to get to those files?

Please Help

I wonder if there is any problem of incompatible media type, for example one is using DVD-R and the other is using DVD+R?

If you have CD/DVD burning software (e.g. Nero or Easy Media Creator) installed on the XP PC, check disc properties using burning software. Ensure that disc is finalized.

both  DVD are compatible with DVD + and DVD -

I've checked DVD in nero and it says that there is on CD in driver.
I remember that I've clicked on finalize disc under Windows Vista.
But maybe Vista didn't do this?
Is there any way to finalize disk?

If your version of Nero supports DVDs, it will finalize a DVD providing you have a DVD-RW drive in PC.
