Tell us how the DVDs were burned on your PC? Unless you burned them to the Joliet standard and the session closed, they probably are not compatible except on the machine you burned them with.

I'm sure chas would agree me on this. Yes, you just threw your money away. Do not install MacKeeper. Please search our forums for more info on it.
