If you do not describe your problems, it is haed to help.
You may e.g. call readcd -c2scan to check the quality of the medium.
A freshly written CD should not have any C2 error. If there are C2 errors
on recently written CDs, the quality of the medium is low or the writer
(laser) is worn out or has a dusty lens.
BTW: A dusty lens may be a result from sucking dusty air through the drive.
