Unhappy DVD-R disks

My laptop has a DVD-R drive but 2 out of 5 different brands of dvd-r disks dont work even though they are -r.
The ones that dont work burn ok but dont playback on my dvd player or laptop, it either says 'disk error', 'this format cannot be read' or not just read it at all.
I pay about £10 for 25 disks on a spindle so does anyone where I can get some disks for that much or even help me with my problem.

I burn movies on them and store them rather than keep writing to them, and I dont have any.

Have you updated to lates firmwarefor your dvd. When you buy dvd-R some would say that in some case's depending how old your driver is you must update firmware. Also you may want to check the MFG web site to check what dvd-R's it would recomend.
