You can't make a copy of a copy of a digitally recorded MiniDisc, so make sure that isn't what's happening- if so, it usually says "Din Unlock" and you can't record. I think when I record from one deck to the other digitally, I have set the recording deck to "REC", then I hit 'play' on both decks at the same time. Using the digital input, it should automatically set your track marks. You cannot make a digital copy of this MiniDisc, BUT you can make an Analog copy. Let me know if you need more info.
It could be you corrupted the MD somehow and can no longer play it. Since it is a portable I had a similar instance where I played the same song many times my disc did the same thing. I may have been running and giggled it at the wrong time. It is not impossible to mung a minidisc just unlikely.
Other options are you got dust in the minidisc and it is blocking the laser. I think I would try to make another MD of the song. If it only does it with a particular disc it is the disc if it does it will all of them the laser mechanism may be wearing out and is mechanically unable to slide to follow the track. I once lubricated the worm gear which moved the laser in an old portable which solved a similar situation.
I would recommend you check the specs at minidisc.org for other decks with this feature.
Auto pause is nice but 300 series decks were cheaper versions and 500's are getting very old so you are unlikely find one which will perform well for a long time. Get a later model for best value and longer service...
You can also check out eBay listings since there is a lot of MD stuff there if you don't see auto pause ask the seller about it. A good seller will know his stuff...
You probably need to press play or record or pause release in addition to what you have been doing. When I try to record I sometimes then have to press record or the pause again as it is in a holding setting to help you set the sound level before recording.
If it is not this fix the deck probably has mechanical problems due to age. I have had Sony decks which worked fine sit in storage for a time then never work again - I don't know why either.
