Re: CD-MP3 Player stops after playing a specified number...
Check your lens on the laser....is it dirty? IF so it needs to be cleaned....STOP !!!......the laser lens is on the focusing mechanism, which is EXTREMELY delicate.
TO clean the lens, get a Q-Tip and some distilled water ( the lenses are plastic, so do not EVER use alcohol, cleaners, window cleaners,etc... on the lens. These will make the lens cloudy and you will then have to replace the mechanism).
Moisten the Q-tip ( Not to the point where it is dripping, but just moist ), and CAREFULLY clean all dust and dirt off the lens. Wait 10 minutes untill the lens has dried completely and try it then.
Hopefully this solved your problem. Dirt is the enemy of all Optically read formats.

IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THIS DISC ON NORMAL CD PLAYERS YOU NEED TO FINALIZE THE TRACK . HOPE THIS HELPS..yammandan.
1. First problem: "like nothing is recorded". IS something recorded or has it been left in Pause Mode so long (instead of Recording) that it just got impatient and time out?
2. Get yourself a couple of CD-RW Digital Audio discs to play with until you're past this learning curve/problem scenario. That way you can always erase them and start over without having to discard the disc.
3. Dropouts on playback. Are they repeatable - always at the same place, even on different CD players? If so, the data is bad on the disc. If not, the data is probably marginal.
4. If you have a DVD player, try to play the failed recordings in it. Some DVD players can play back unfinalized CDR's. You may be able to recover the data by copying it back to the CD Recorder from the DVD player. Just be advised that an unfinalized CD-RW may not have 'silence' following the last recorded track due to old data remaining from a previous session, so be ready to pause or stop the recorder when the last track finishes.
5. "Scratches near the outside of the CD". Were these NOT present prior to entering the CD Recorder? Do they seem to coincide with about where the recording may have failed?
6. 20 vs 19 tracks: Is this a constant problem or only when there is a failure during CD creation? If the latter, it would make sense as the last track in isn't technically completed.
Can you name the make and model? Maybe we can find a manual. I find a lot of them at retrevo.com. Just register for free and download whatever they have.
I think you have the 4 second thing backward.
Most CD Recorders will interpret a 4-second silence while recording as the end of a given track and will stop or pause. Some can can be set to leave a blank of 4 seconds between tracks (or not) when manually starting a new track. That can really be a problem on continuous recordings like live music or some classical material where brief silences occur routinely.
On my Pioneer PDR-509 there is a "Track No. Auto/Manual" selection that allows me to write a track manually whenever I want to. This is good for live or segued musical selections and doesn't require a stop/start of the recording. Of course, any time you pause or stop the track number will be incremented.
I can't really speak to the TOC errors. The fault could be with a) your machine, b) the media or c) the playback machine. The TOC is automatically created when you Finalize the disc. My machine takes 4 minutes to write it.
Little-known fact: a CD that is not finalized will not read/play on a CD player but a DVD player might play it from start to finish just fine, but without the ability to skip around because of the missing TOC. Nice to know if you mess up an original irreplaceable CD recording by not finalizing it and need to copy it over.
Have you tried cleaning the lens? It's incredible how a dirty lens can cause so much grief! You'll need the CD player cover removed and powered off then get some isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud. Wet the bud but not too much get any excess moisture off.
Using a careful circular motion clean the lens, let it dry and try the player again. If this does not cure the problem, you may have a defective laser and that will need replacing.
