How do you determine they're broken? Like which error messages you get with
what command, that makes you decide to trash them.

Cdrecord (or burncd for that matter) doesn't know what bootable cd-roms are.
The iso file determines if they're bootable or not. Cdrecord/burncd just
tells the cd writer what bytes to burn in which sectors.
man mkisofs should tell you about making an iso file bootable.
