SOURCE: dvd player gives unknown disc
thats because its region locked..do the following:
start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.
Your DVD player is now region free.
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.

You might have created a data cd, dvd player normally don't support data cd. If that is not the case then you the file format is not support by your dvd player.
You would have to search for a software to convert the file to the format supported by your dvd player. and write it on the disc again.

You could try cleaning the laser using a laser cleaning disk. Most of the time when it cant read a disk its just because the laser is dirty. If that doesn't work it could just be a faulty laser
