I suspect it wasn't readable because the default file system it created for
the data volume was HFS+ (Mac format). However, I'm betting you can adjust
settings for it to create Win-compatible disks. Mac has had support for
both file systems on floppies and Zip Disks for over a decade. It seems
reasonable that they would keep it for DVDs. Have you tried Apple's
knowledge-base website for topics on burning DVDs?
If not there, other posters will probably be able to give you the
step-by-step on how to make it happen.
