Burning Dual Layer DVDs using cheap media

So I have a good sized stack of DVD+R DL 2.4x under the brand of "Prime". They suck. But, seeing as how I already have them, I figure I might as well use them. I've done 7 or 8 burns and only 1 has been successful. Layer 0 always burns and plays fine, but Layer 1 is unreadable when I put the disc through verification, or play it in a DVD player. Is there anything I can do to increase the chance of a successful burn with this low-quality media? (e.g. a certain layer-break setting, burn speed, etc... anything)

Note: I'm not looking for someone to tell me to use Verbatim discs. I was given a large stack of these cheap ones, and want to know if there's a way to better use them than to try and try and try until 1 magically works
