It's all about getting your shit dialed. Adjust the cables and tension to your liking, if your rim isn't machine, machine it... etc.

If you don't know how to properly adjust brakes, then it doesn't matter what kind you get because no brakes work if they are not dialed in correctly. Learn how to set brakes up properly, you might find out yours may work just fine if you get them set up the right way.

machined, as in roughed up. If you machine your rim (if it's not a chrome rim) it will give a rougher surface, which allows for a better braking surface.

I used an pneumatic air tool with a wheel for removing paint. But you could use a dremmel tool or something similar. I don't think you'd get anywhere with sandpaper, but it is worth a try.
