Mini disc units are funny- when you get one that works then you are good to go. But when you have a malfunction you have to take very careful steps as when discs get stuck or the system crashes- the wrong action will damage the TOC (Table of Contents) and then the disc can still have the music on it but the unit doesn't know where it is. I have seen many people in radio studios do the wrong thing and the data on the disc is lost. It is best to do straightforward type operation on these units and then once a problem is observed- best to have it serviced right away- hoping it goes away usually results in a broken plastic piece and a unrepairable deck. I know radio stations that have piles of those unit in the closet. The solution to mechanical issues is lubrication and a current limit resistor on the motor circuit.

SOURCE: Spontaneous MD erasure
Well, depending how the content was recorded, there may be a slim chance to recover the audio. To me it looks like TOC was not written successfully, effectively deleting the TOC.
You can try TOC cloning with this 'blank' MD using another MD player, but your track markers will be lost during the cloning. If it works, at best you will end up with ONE long track. Then you can edit and reset your track markers.
It may be also be a good idea, to try the JE440 carefully with junk content to make sure it still works ok when writing TOC. You may have an intermittent problem too. I'd be very careful editing MD in this unit until it has been confirmed the TOC writing works ok. You may want to check the over-write head assembly and the cable that connects it. Sometimes these cables develop hairline cracks causing intermittend write action.
Check out www.minidisc.org forum for TOC cloning.
Good luck recovering your audio.
