When I insert an MD into the stereo, it will (A)not play it and (B) take FOREVER to eject it. Sometimes I have to cut the power and reconnect to have the MD ejected. Any suggestions as to what's causing this problem? How much will it cost to rectify?

The red wire from the stereo is 12v signal, basically when you turn the key on it send 12v to the red wire to make your stereo come on. Everything else is fine since you can insert and eject cds. You may have pulled the signal wire loose when you changed the ignition switch, check the wires behind the radio and the wires to the ignition switch.
A malfunctioning stereo may least allow feature buttons to perform extractions of CDs. Depending on how the stereo was installed, the car would have to be powered on to attain stereo functionalities. Second, CDs have to be inserted with the readable media side facing the appropriate lenses to achieve results. A wrong insertion of the CD into stereo compartment may require forceful extraction. Observe the type of stereo to ascertain CD extraction also known as reset buttons. Usually a tiny area, the reset button allows inserting an object that forces the car stereo to eject stuck disks. Every mean to eject stereo disk have to be performed while the car is turned on to utilize the source of power. An unsuccessful attempt to dislodge CDs in stereo compartments would require auto electrician's consultation. An unsuccessful dislodge attempt usually requires acquiring a new stereo in replacement of the malfunction.
The manual says "C13/Disc Error:
The system cannot read the discinformation correctly.mEject the MD once, then insert it again." It seems this error turns up when the system cannot read the disc properly, one reason for which is a dirty/dusty lens. Try a minidisc lens cleaner if you haven't already.
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.
The car stereo has 2 +12V inputs: the constant batt input and the key in one. So actually the stereo is always connected to +12V, even in standby. When you turn your key, the key in input also starts, thus starting your stereo instantly. When you turn the ignition on, the key in input is switched off for a couple of seconds, so that all the power goes to starting your engine. After that key in input should be back on - this is your problem here.
One possible solution would be to cut this wire out, and split the RED battery +12V cable so that it enters in the key in input as well. Check wiring diagrams!.
Test this with cables out (without reinstalling the whole thing back in) and if it works.......leave it and put everything back in.
Only downside is, you have to turn off the radio by hand when you exit your car - or you could lose all battery power !
