Looking for a CD drive with the best error correction for old CDRs

I have a few old (10 years+) CD-Rs that I tried to rip on different drives without success (EAC reports errors, rips have audible pops and cracks), they don't have many scratches so I guess they're dying of old age. I would like to get clean rips from them, so I'm looking for a drive that have great error correction for CDRs. Any suggestions for particular model?

Drives that I tried to rip on:
Pioneer BDR-209EBK
Sony Optiarc BD-5300S
LG GSA-T50N
Samsung SH-S162L
LITE-ON LTR-40125S
LITE-ON DH-20A4P

Thanks for help.

I think that's it, and the CDRs are dead. Do they play correctly in CD player? If so, you can do analog rip. If not, then damage is too great to be corrected in any way,
