How old is 'old'? The CDROM must be multi-read capable , generally drives that are 8x or slower are not multi-read capable meaning they are not designed to read CDR/RW discs. Improving the quality of the disc may help but even that is no guarantee. If the CDROM is faster than 8x (thus multi-read) it may be getting dirty, making it harder for the drive to read the less reflective CDR discs. Cleaning the drive may help.
