Why do the authors disappear in the second case? How do I fix it (short of manually editing the bib file)?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • The authors don't "disappear" -- their names are replaced by ---------. That's what the IEEEtran bibliography style is programmed to do with entries whose authors are repeated from the preceding entry. If you don't like this look, start looking for a different bibliography style. – Mico Feb 13 '18 at 15:26

They are just the same as in the previous entry in list. This is how IEEEtran style formats the references.
