It is possible that until you finalize the disc, the only track that will play is the first one. Unfortunately, once you finalize the disc, you cannot record additional tracks to it. You can verify this by finalizing after recording the second track and seeing if they then both play. If that works, you can safely burn additional discs with confidence that they are burning correctly even if you cannot play each back after burning and must wait until finalization to test full burn.
The recorder was switched off/unplugged after recording without ejecting the disc. The recorder could not write essential recording information onto the disc.
While REPAIR is displayed, the recorder automatically examines the recorded area of the disc and updates the track numbers and recording time data. This process takes about 40 minutes for a fully recorded disc. Finalization or further recording is possible once the REPAIR message disappears.
The CDR lost track of the information on the disc. This most often happens when the unit is powered off before the disc was ejected. Give the unit about 40 minutes to go through the disc contents and locate the tracks. When the Repair message goes away, then you can finalize the disc.
I have a Pioneer PD509 which is a spittin' image of the HHB CDR830 but tied down to use CD-Audio discs only.
My experiece with Rewriteable Media has been that they don't hold up to multiple uses. I used them to make quick 'n' dirty dubs of cassette audio then worked it into a polished copy with proper track marks and sweetening later for copy over to a CD-RA. After a few passes I'd start getting audible problems when copying off the -RW's, so I routinely just use them about 5 times. With two DVD players and a Blu-Ray I sometimes get through the errors on one of them for one final digital copy and then I can them.
BTW: you may want to try the failing disc in a DVD player. Mine will play through an unfinalized CD but can't cue up to anything. So if the recording is vital you might retrieve it that way. Just remember to pause the Recorder at the end of the last cut you want because the DVD will just crash right into the old data without changing track numbers or any warning.
Just a guess, but did you ever try to hit the record a second time once you're all set up to start? The first press of the record button places the machine in record/pause mode after it calibrates itself to the disc.
