The safe disk is just a protection model from the company that produce it to prevent copying and so ..but in rest it is just a normal disk ...if this is a video-movie disk...try to install a program and a codec capable to read it ..and try again ..I suggest the VLC and the FFDshow codec to be able to read dvd format ..

if it is a game ..probably it s made in a format that your dvd is not seeing it .

HI, its the problem that your dvd/cd can not read dvd cd .
Think It could be a problem with the lens, you should try cleaning the lens, and clean all the

cable ribon,and also fit it tightly.
If you take a little risk but you can solve it self.
follow the instruction: Don't panic its very simply.
1. When running your pc , open the drawer.>
2. switch off the ac power
3. remove power cable & sata or pata cable
4. remove all the screw from the back side
5. press clip to open the font panel
6. reverse the cd/dvd rw
7. just remove the cover
8. clean the optical lance
9. remove all the ribon and clean by eraser or sharp blade.

10. use a little ( not much )oil place on two steel shaft
11. cover all the equipment

If it does the same problem please change the cd/dvd rw because the lance has

defected.

Philips DVD+RW SDVD8820 does not recognise burned CD or DVDs


it could be upper and lower filters in registry and system files, use a removal tool called filtercheck 4.6 in CDR-zone.com (goto the forums and search for filtercheck)
after you downoad, run it, click yes to all filters found to remove. close program.

reinstall your preferred burning app (1 prog installed at a time and test burn)
this is to replace the filter entry that was corrupt
