CD-RW Disks Problem

My CD-RW Drive is fairly old, though it used to work well enough. As is normal, CD-RW disks don't last for more than about 3 months if used for constant backup.

My Drive is:
SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SW-212B Samsung 12x/8x/32x

I just got some new disks. Memorex CD-RW 4X

Almost usless. Didn't format first time with Adaptec Direct CD. Now formatted OK. Can copy some files, then unrecoverable errors when trying to copy others. Able to read most of the file OK, but unrecoverable error on one.

So what to do? Buy some more disks, or a new drive, or use some different software? I don't burn dozens of disks, but I need a more reliable and convenient backup. CD-R is fine for old stuff, but not suitable for daily backups.
