Help me burn these family movie DVDs on my Mac, please!

I have a DVD of some family movies that I would like to burn some copies of. Problem is: It doesn't work.
I have put the disk into three different Macs I have and they spit it out. I have tried it in all three and they respond much like when you try to give cough syrup to a toddler.
Is there any way I can access the files or pull the files off?
I have tried to play it on my brand new iMac, my old G4 PPC Powerbook, and my ancient circa 2002 iMac.
None of them register it at all.
They recognize other media without a problem.
It is a Maxwell DVD+R. This should work. I have both played and burned DVDs on both the new iMac and the Powerbook before - is there a reason it isn't working this time? Everything else is fine.
I thought that I could pull the files onto a jump drive and then burn it one at a time.
It plays in some DVD players.
It is only video, there is no audio.
I would really like to have this done by Christmas, if I can.
