Burning 700mb discs with old burner

I’ve got an old mitsumi-drive from 1998, and I’ve never been able to burn 700mb discs. I can get the software to start the job, but it just spins and spins.
Any suggestions - anything from cd-brands to burning software would be helpfull.
I use the old but realiable WOC togo 4.5

If the hardware cannot handle it, you will never make it work by using software either.

Only thing I can suggest is a firmware upgrade. For some burners it is possible to use firmware of a differend brand, allowing it to do more than it could otherwise (good example is Sony firmware for HP burners, to increase speed or enebaling 700 MB burning for the HP8100i)
