According to everything you posted, here's what I'd like to say.
Lasers just like any other things tend to wear out. So as laser gets older its wave lenght shortens. So ewery laser unit at the back side allways has 1 or 2 potentiometers (adjustable resistors) So just go deep into your unit to access laser. and very gently turn one resistor at a time by around 2 degrees clockwise. give it a try, if stil not good, turn the other resistor and try again. It will gradualy begin to read CDs
any questions, drop me a line, or you can get to me directly email@example.com

Since The player works fine with Your previously burnt cd's and purchased cd's i think the problem lies with your burning software. Try Reinstalling the Nero Burning software or try other free alternatives like Express burn.

There are so many factors as below -
1. CD-R vs. CD-RW.
You should be burning your audio CDs to CD-R media, not CD-RW media (CD re-writable). Some newer players will play CD-RW discs. But for the most part, the majority of audio CD players will only play CD-R discs.
2. Burn speed.
Each brand of CD-R has a certified maximum burn speed, which is expressed as a multiple of the audio playback speed. So, a disc certified at 24x can be burnt at 24 times faster than the audio CD will be spinning when it is played. You must set the burn rate in your CD duplication software according to the disc’s specification, or the data will not be written reliably. This can result in skips, or CD-Rs that will play to a certain point and then just stop. Ideally you want to burn your CD lower than the certified speed, to take into account manufacturing defects in your burner or the disc.
3. Brand of CD-R
If you have been burning CDs for a while, you probably have noticed that some brands of CD-Rs work well in some players, and some do not. CD-R discs are said to be “burned”. When you burn a CD-R disc, a focused laser beam darkens the chemical dye on your disc to mimic the bumps and flat spots that are generated on a replicated disc.
