Why does my Laptop not read the DVD that I had burnt on it?It read once but then later on it doesnt read it again.?

I have Acer 4720 Z and I used the Mastered Format while burning Video files on DVD R+.

Could the disk be smudge or scratched?

Some drives don't cooperate with some formats. I have a drive that wouldn't read DVD-R, but would read DVD+R. Also, you can try burning at a slower speed or using a different brand of media. Some drives are just old and dying and won't read much anymore. It's best to replace those and save yourself the time of trying to find the right combination to make it work. DVD drives are not expensive anymore.
