When you go to Recovery Media Creation it says to use DVD-R to make the discs. Does that mean you can't use regular CD-R discs to create the recovery media? I have a stack of new CD-R discs I would like to use but I don't want to mess this up. Recovery Media Creator says you can only create the discs one time which is scary because I have made bad discs before. Do you guys recommend a particular brand of discs? I want to make sure the recovery discs burn properyly.

CD-R discs are way too small @650MB.
DVD-R media is 4.7GB and that is why it is the standard used.
The best media for DVD is generally agreed to be JVC Taiyo Yuden

While JVC dvds are good, I have found that Sony DVD+R disks work best for me on every machine I have burned a set. I have also seen several members solve their burning issue after I suggested trying Sony.
