It could be anything, from your DVD-R to the software you are using to the disc. The fact that the disc was never written before does not stop it from it being closed. You can close a session on a DVD by not writting any data on it. It could also be that it is a DVD+R and your DVD writter is only DVD-R compatible.

1) Try a different disc first
2) Try different software
3) Try the so called empty disc on a friend's computer and see what it says there.
4) Very unlikely - Your DVD-R is faulty and needs to be replaced.
