Turning DVD's to CD'S

I know this sounds stupid and many will ask the question as to why one would want to do this, but a friend of mine bought about 70 DVD's at a cheap computer store thinking they were CD's and gave them to me to burn a few of my CD's from my collection. I am not going out to by a pack of CD's for him and besides that, half of these DVD's look as if they have been undully exposed to light, where about half of the outer disc has a dark rusty brown colour in a cresent moon shape being about four millimeters at its widest point. I don't care if I only use up a CD's worth of data, just so that it can be played on a CD player. Can this be done?

No, the tracks are narrower on a DVD, a CD player can't read them, you cannot cut new tracks.

just burn audio cds onto the dvds as you would regular cd's and have him play them in his ps2, xbox, or dvd player... or a car tv/dvd receiver

Those DVD's sound real dodgey...I wouldn't even put them in my dvd burner to begin with.
