it didn't give a more meaningful error than that?
was there enough room on the DVD?
if you just burnt the 32bit or the 64bit, there should be, but if you downloaded both as the one image, your DVD will need to be a dual layer one.
why not burn the Windows image to a USB stick?

Media Creation Tool is not the best option for beginners,i have the same experience,and you can even use some tools like me to make a bootable DVD for Windows 10.
Like ImgBurn,AnyBurn and InfraRecorder,i believe they are capable of helping you.

You are using a Dual Layer DVD even the Windows 10 download for the ISO is 5 GB and a standard DVD is 4.7 GB.
Thanks for the tip. So I should download the old version of Windows 10 that less than 4.7GB?

that's one possibility but why do that then have her machine get the latest updates for the version you install then have to download the latest version when it detects your older version and she have to download gigabytes of data.

why not just get a dual layer DVD disc?
or use a USB stick?

It depends on you,you can even create a Windows 10 bootable DVD disk with ImgBurn or Free ISO Burner.
You can find many professional tools on Google, I found this, and it did.
