How do I reformat my computer with 3 recovery disks?

So I tried to make recovery disks via Recover Disk Creation on my HP Pavilion and it said I needed 3 discs to complete the process. Now, I want to reformat my computer but I have 3 discs. How does it work? I've done with 1 cd, but when using 3, will the computer prompt me when to put in the next cd and so on?

Just start the process with the first disc and you will be prompted to insert the 2nd and 3rd - ie the drive will pop open and you will see a prompt 'Insert disc 2'.  Insert the 2nd disc and close the drive to continue.  The same will happen when the 3rd disc is required.
