Sony doesn't read burned backups

I have a new Sony RDR-GX350 DVD Recorder, it doesn’t play any of my old backups burned on my PC.

I have been able to play these on my current philips dvd recorder, a cheap old sansui, and a Panasonic DVD recorder I tried but took back as unsatisfied (this one could only play my later burns).

All were extracted by DVDshrink

The earlier burns are on DVD-R’s, written by deepburner, on my desktop PC, finalised.

The later ones are on DVD+R’s, written by Toshiba disk creator on my laptop, finalised.

I have no trouble with factory dvd’s, even one that has a different region code (which my philips didn’t like), but 100% failure rate on the burned ones.

The player comes up with no error message, just attempts to play several times with the tv screen flashing, then displays “stop”. It seems like it can’t find or startup the menu.

I have googled and checked Sony.com, i can’t find any evidence of a firmware update for this model.

Is there anything I can try to run these dvd’s?
Is there any setting I should try when burning new ones?
Should i take the dvd recorder back to the shop?

Thanks

No

Maybe experiment with different media brands, different burners and burning speeds.

Yup.
