At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.
That is an electronic problem. Probably a just-about-to-break cable in the motor of the CD drive, that sometimes causes a short and turns off the unit, or sometimes makes it to comport erratically and produce the buzzy sound. If you have electronics knowledge, then you may open and check the wiring harnesses. If don't, take it to your local electronics repair.
I understand what you are saying. The Durabrand is very cheaply made and the ani-skip actually does not work near as long as stated by company. I would buy more expensive player or a different brand. Look for 60 Second Anti-Skip if you want a good one.
This is not possible to change as it is the nature of all CD players, unlike DVD players which give you the stop/resume function. Cd players have a similar function called pause, but other than that its alm,ost impossible to fully stop and start off again from where you left off unless you skip to the track and hold the skip button to fast foward/rewind.
It sounds as if you've covered about as much as you can do without pulling it out and taking to the repair shop. Something you should definitely do if all this skipping is taking place whilst the car is stationary.
A lot of earlier car CD players wouldn't accept the burn it yourself type disks and perhaps the factory CD was damaged. Try a few more factory CDs before you do anything else. Just because a disk plays on the Computer or cd Player in the house doesn't mean it will behave itself in the car.
If you've has the unit for a while you could have the smear of grease they put on the worm drive gummed up with dust and this is stopping the disk carriage from moving freely. Or perhaps the heads are out of alignment due to constant vibration from rough roads. Either of these problems would mean a removal and either a clean or the repair shop.
