My DVD drive (it does DVD-R,DVD+R,DVD-RW,DVD+RW) likes to play random chance games. Yamakawa? Who's heard of them? I got a $90 drive for $30 at TigerDirect's store...
It will sometimes read a disk, but sometimes decide that there is no disk in the drive even though I just put one there.
*stops ranting*

Yamakawa... sounds like a combination of Yamaha and Kawasaki. Music on a rice rocket? (*shrug*)

How fast are you burning, and are you using good brand name media or really cheap stuff? Either could be your problem.

Try a slower burn speed, higher rates cause misburned sectors or bits and make the disc act up on playback.

Cheap media - y'know, the 100 discs for $12.95 sort of deal are hardly worth the time.
