SOURCE: Spontaneous MD erasure
Well, depending how the content was recorded, there may be a slim chance to recover the audio. To me it looks like TOC was not written successfully, effectively deleting the TOC.
You can try TOC cloning with this 'blank' MD using another MD player, but your track markers will be lost during the cloning. If it works, at best you will end up with ONE long track. Then you can edit and reset your track markers.
It may be also be a good idea, to try the JE440 carefully with junk content to make sure it still works ok when writing TOC. You may have an intermittent problem too. I'd be very careful editing MD in this unit until it has been confirmed the TOC writing works ok. You may want to check the over-write head assembly and the cable that connects it. Sometimes these cables develop hairline cracks causing intermittend write action.
Check out www.minidisc.org forum for TOC cloning.
Good luck recovering your audio.

SOURCE: stuck disc
The carriage assemblies for these units are known to break. Please DO NOT attempt to remove the disk. Bring this to an authorized Sony service center. They should be able to give you a fixed price repair quote. This is the only way to save the disc and prevent further damage to the assembly. The replacement assemblies are a bit better than the originals so you shoudn't have this problem again.
I have repaired a number of these with much success. Care must be taken so that the disc heads are not damaged.
Keep us posted.
