Old hardwood cupped and splintered

Has anyone had any success refinishing old fir hardwood floors? My house is about 100 years old and while most of the floors came out beautifully after using a drum sander, the boards in the kitchen are cupped and some are have large splinters on the surface. The splinters were tearing the sandpaper on the drum sander. Any possible remedies for this?
