I have some CD-RW's which are aabout 8 years old. I can no longer access them. Is there any way to recover some or all of the data on an old CD-RW?

Depends how they were burnt originally.
If they were burnt packet writing style (such as inCD for example) you need the same program version it was burnt with, otherwise it won't be read by newer versions, which is one of the reasons why packet writing sucks.
