Possible causes:
Incompatability between media type burned and media type required by the DVD player that doesn't work (ie, trying to play a DVD+R in a DVD-R player)
Burning to a rewritable DVD disk and trying to play that in another DVD player.
Burning in the wrong mode; DVD Video works for me.

In my opinion, the problem is the DVD+RW disc because it never gets finalized in the DVD Video mode (it remains open for rewrites). It is really funny that you encountered this problem because I have a stack of DVD-RWs laying around and I just tried to burn a video to DVD and my commercial player wouldn't recognize it, so I burned the same video onto a DVD-R (exact same process) and it worked. Here's hoping you have a DVD-R handy to try it. Also, I'm assuming you have the software to correctly burn a DVD Video such as Nero or some other capable program.
