This sounds crazy but it works for some reasons. Marantz CDR500 would not read and initialise some blank discs but no problem with reading finalised ones and erratic would and would-not work. Tried cleaning lens and even blowing ar through it. Before I wasted money in air I thought why not try hairdryer into open tray and lens area and just for measure across blank CD. I know this sounds weird but it worked every time and machine will read any make of disc like this. I do not have any scientific explanation only the fact that it works!!!
Are the discs ones that you created (burned), someone else burned, or commercial discs? The message of disc not finalized usually appears when you put a CD or DVD from one unit into anther without closing (finalizing) the disc. The finalization step doesn't matter if the disc is being moved between computers with compatible OS versions (for example: XP through Windows 7). However, any other device will need this procedure completed.
Take the disc back to the unit (computer or other burner) where the disc was burned. If the computer uses Windows, put the disc in the optical drive. Open My Computer (Computer) depending on the OS by double left-clicking on the icon on the desktop. Right click on the optical drive and select Close Session.
If you created the CD on another machine, check the details for that device.
Note: you should double-check that the format that you burned to disc is compatible with this CD player. Not all models support MP3 files. On my own older CD player, I had to burn WAV files without gaps in a Disc At Once format to get the discs to play without skips.
I hope this helps.

The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped. The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely. The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.
it's more than likely the servo board which is fixed under the mechanism. this is very common but i'm not sure which component fails on the board but i've always got hold of donor recorders and switched the servo boards and all was fine.
have a look on ebay for a cheap working donor recorder as spares are very expensive and very hard to get hold of. i'm guessing your recorder either doesn't read discs, or it won't eject? which is very common and means either the servo board is faulty or the laser.
The following recorders i know off hand for a donor mechanism are:
MARANTZ DR-6050 PHILIPS CDR-775 PHILIPS CDR-770
if it proves to be just a faulty laser, all 3 of the above have the same laser unit. if it proves to be a faulty servo board, all 3 have the same servo boards except if you fit one out of a philips model it will show 'PHILIPS CD RECORDER' on the display at power up but will still work nontheless. obviously if a marantz is found it will show 'MARANTZ CD RECORDER' as normal.
have you tried cleaning cd lense and if you are using nero burning rom earlier version update to latest and try any other brand of cd-r's to see if it is the make-up of the disks as some manufactors use different ways to make cd's coating and asus have on their website all media covered by the cd burners in the last resort change to a burner that is compatable with the media you wish to use the burners have come down in price so I would sugest geting a dvd burner combo doing cd's and dvd's
