As a rule of thumb I found that if you burn a cd at a faster speed than the
drive can read it, it won't. Make sure you are buning at the LOWEST possible
speed your drive can burn at.

Try other brands of blanks. Samsung 16x seemed to work the best in
old CD drives, but AFIK they are no longer available.

Clean the lens of the CD reader with a cleaning CD.
