Windows 7: PC Does Not 'See' Burned DVD

PC Does Not 'See' Burned DVD

After burning a movie my pc will not play it. Whatever player I try and use (vlc, wmp, mpclassic, etc) it pops up a window with the 'please insert a disk' message. These discs play fine on all the stand-alone players in our house, including our blu-ray player. However, the pc will play all my factory discs. Ideas?
