Disk of images won't open

Advertisement
I burned a disk with photographic images. It was working properly at the time I burned it. Now, I want to open it and I can hear the drive grinding away, but it finally spits it out. The disk works fine on my husband's Power Book G4 with the same operating system. Other disks that I have prepared the same way work on my iMac G5. This has happened to me several times. Any clues as to the problem?
