Try to rip one track from the CD, this would tell you if the burner(s) can
read the CD, and then try to listen to the file. If I remember correctly,
can use Audacity for this.

If that works, then maybe try one of those big media players/managers like
banshee, or others (you can search in Synaptic and choose one you might
like). Hopefully they will be able to play your disks.
