I would say it makes more sense to re-rip your CDs or acquire MP3s rather than re-encode from any low-bitrate media.

In most cases the result will be of lower quality, because the second lossy encoder is going to try encoding the resulting noise from the output of the first encoder.

comment How to check quality of CD/DVD before burning?
The only things you can do are to try to read with multiple devices and use a media scanning tool like the linked to qpxTool to profile the media. CD/DVD burning is mostly a game of convergence, where you have to find the right combination of devices and media and burning software and settings such that you get discs that can be read more often than not.
