Hello i bought the recovery disks for my lenovo ideapad y500 because i wanted to get it back to normal. I knew i could not use the disks as normal because in my ultra bay i have an extra gt 650 so i wanted to move the recovery disks to a usb. But i dont know how i am able to do it i have 3 recovery disks and i need help. I have a 1000 gb external hard drive but i dont know how to make it work any ideas?

I've tried to do what you are attempting, as have others. Never had any luck getting Lenovo media to work after transferring it to a USB device. It would boot, but couldn't complete the recovery.
My tests were with ThinkPad media. It's possible that you will succeed with IdeaPad media, but I doubt it
Your best bet might be an external USB DVD drive.
