Default Anyway to get CDRs to be read on an OLD CDROM Drive?

I have an old Thinkpad that has a CD Drive that has problems reading CDRs.

In Windows it can usually read them, but it can be a little reluctant and can also be very slow and give read errors.

But if I boot into DOS, I always get Abort, Retry, Fail errors when trying to read a CDR.

Factory pressed media seems to work fine.

Think is, I want to install Win2K on the machine, but all I have with me is my backup copy.

Is there a certain burning process that would help.

Or maybe a certain type of media?

Right now I'm using Fujis. They have a blueish bottom.
