Create Recovery Disc to External DVD Drive?

My T61 comes with only CD-RW/DVD. So if I make recovery disc, instead of creating 5-8 CDs, can I make recovery disc to external DVD drive? So only 1 DVD is enough?

Thanks for answer.

I haven't tried it, but it shouldn't be a problem. After the function has gathered the infos it needs it will ask which device it should write to, you should be able to select the usb drive.
Please note, the first disc needs to be a cd as boot cd, then you can create a recovery dvd.

Yeah, That will work as long as you make both the boot cd and restore dvd's in the external drive. It might take two dvd's depending on which OS you have. Be sure when making the discs to select the external drive.

I actually did this with an external DVD writer, the Sony DRX-S70U.  It took one 4.7 gb DVD disk.
