My Sony BD350 plays the older DVD's I have with no problems, but the ones I burn on my PC will not run. The unit I replaced with my Sony, a standard DVD recorder / player, yes recorder, runs them just fine, I would hate to keep them both. the manual does not address this and I cant find any mention on line.
Any help would be great.

Possible that a new update needs to be installed to update the player so as to allow the software to play. Please check with the official website of LG support. register your product and get the firmware to be installed. http://www.lg.com/us/support/index.jsp
I have a comparable model purchased from Costco and I too have this same issue, however some of my DVD-R'S do play back. For me it has been hit or miss with burning a standard dvd and getting it to play in my sony bluray player.I have several backups of kids movies that would play in my Philips dvd player, that will not currently play in my Sony bluray player. It is not the media that is in question it is the format/method of the way the dvd is setup, created and burned. (i think) The reason I say that is that i can take a cheapo dvd -r or dvd + r and burn a standard dvd on it. It will not play. I can then take the same brand media, burn it as DATA DVD, with an MKV file on it, and it plays fine. I do have to burn the data dvd with these options (using Imageburn) data type = MODE1/2048, file system = UDF, udf revision=2.50. This is what i do for an MKV file. Now in regards to burned dvd -r or dvd +r. It is unfortunately a work in process determining the correct or most optimum way to burn them. Here is what i have found most recently. Home movies, I imported home movies from my Canon camcorder zr300 (digital video) with windows video import (windows vista os). File format was Windows Media File. I used convertxtodvd to create the dvd files, then I used DVD shrink to make an ISO. I will be trying Nero this weekend and will post additional comments. I think it is an issue with the Sony firmware or codecs as well as the Digital Rights management. Unfortunately I know this little synopsis does not answer your problem, I just wanted you to know you are not the only one with the issue. As soon as I have a better, more scientific answer and can duplicate the results with more than one dvd -r or dvd +r, I will post my findings. I am also having a continous error 300 in regards to the Netflix application. They (sony and netflix) told me to deactivate the device, then reactivate the device. I have had this issue since July 2011. I hope this helped you a little bit.
blue ray players takes one to two minute to read the content. it will not read as fater as dvd. give some time and then find out what the player says. error or no disc. also check ur BD's region and the region of the disc u inserted. BD's comes with only one region.
Try using an iris cleaner on the unit. It is a disk with a brush grafted onto it. Put it in and run for 6 seconds or so and the laser eye will be cleaned. That should correct the problem. Many hired DVD''s have greasy finger marks on them and it is transgferred to the iris, eventually causing it not to be able to play the disk
This is the unfortunate thing with copying DVD's. Unfortunately when a DVD is copied only certail players will play it back. I can burn a disk on my laptop and it will play fine in the laptop and on my Sony DVD player, but my Samsung will not read it. This is why when you burn DVD's it's important to find a brand that is read by numerous DVD players. Try using the Sony disks.
Make sure the DVD has been finalised. When you finalise a DVD the recorder puts all the disc content information at the start of the disc so that any device you put it into can find out what is on the disc without scanning through 4.7 Gigs of data, (which would take so long it would drive people mad everytime they put a disc into anything). Because the table has not been written the PC cannot see what is on the Disc. Another possible answer: some makes, Orion for one have a Virtual Record mode that it was not possible to play in any other device. And Orion do make products for Goodmans. Most likely the first answer though.
Read here and we can see that other people have both trouble and success running back ups on this device:
So... That tells us this device is finicky IE it requires a high quality burn.
DVD burners have varying levels of accuracy. To improve your burn:
-SLOW the burn speed for increased accuracy
-USE DVD-R only as it is the most compatible
-Use those Sony's DVD-r's at wal-mart or KMART because Sony makes DVR's and everyone else buys them from generic Taiwan manufacturer and relabel
I bet this will solve your problem. After you get a successful burn at 2x try 4x then 6 etc.
