Problem with HP Recovery Manager

Hi,

I have a new Windows 8 HP laptop and I am trying to create the recovery disks.  After being frustrated to find out that the USB drive that I have won't work (it is Windows 8 compatible), I went with optical drive.  The program recognizes the drive and says that I need 6 disks, but it stalls when I put the disk in.  I get a message saying, "The insterted media is not supported!!"  I am using the recommended DVD+R, which my drive can read, and this is the same media that I used to create recovery disks for my old Windows 7 machine.  I just want the recovery disks, why is this so difficult?
