Question about Teac CD-RW880 CD Player / Recorder
I picked up a used Phillips CD recorder. Works fine, but stops after 45-50 minutes, with message "update." Then goes to Disc Error and am unable to finalize. I cleaned the unit and tried every CD-R on the market. When I put in a Phillips CD-r I get a "wrong disc" error. Would love to be able to use the entire disc instead of just 45 minutes of it.
Apologies if you are already aware of this, but are you using 'audio' CDRs? If yes then this is probably a hardware problem, particularly if the 45-50 minutes is consistent across different makes of 'audio' disc. If the problem Philips CDR was definitely an audio grade disc, this also implies a hardware problem rather than a media related one. In that case I can only suggest you ask a repair shop to investigate.

Have you tried cleaning the lazer lens with a cleaning disk?

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.
