Try a different brand of disc as some dvd-writers are 'fussy' about which brands of blank discs it will work with.

Also, if it's not a multi-format writer, make sure you're using the correct type of disc. There are two standards, DVD-R and DVD+R
Most new drives can use either standard, but some older drives can use only one of those two.
