Default Problem making recovery disks...

This is my new lappy: Computers: Laptops: Acer 15.6" Laptop featuring AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core Processor QL-64 (AS5536-5798) | Best Buy Canada Web Store

When I try to make a default backup disk using the Acer eRecovery program, every single DVD I put in is rejected. I've tried several types and brands of CD's and DVD's. Each time, i receive an error message that says 0x205 and it asks for a blank CD/DVD...

Is there any option in which you can burn those recovery discs to an ISO image, then burn using another program.

Can you burn any other discs?

No there's no option to do that. What do you mean by burning other disks?

He means can you burn anything with a different program (music, data, etc)?

Have you tried burning any other dvds or cd with your laptop. It could be that you might have faulty drive.

The other thing that i would be doing is checking Acer's European Support website for the following
* Updates for their e-recovery software
* firmware upgrades for their DVDRW Drive.
