T61 .. can't create Rescue & Recovery Media

Ok, so I am now officially confused.

I go to Programs->ThinkVantage->Create Rescue and Recover Media.

There are two sections, one says Rescue Media, the other Recovery
Discs.

#1 The first time I selected Rescue Media and clicked on CDs/DVDs -- this resulted on only one CD being created.

#2 I went back and this time under Recovery Disk clicked on "Create a set of Product Recovery Disks now" .. that too resulted in only one CD.

#3 So, I tried the first one again, same result. Each single CD that was produced by these 3 different attemps was to be labelled Rescue and Recovery startup disc.

From what I have read I should be getting one CD and one (or more?) DVDs. This is clearly not happening.

What am I doing wrong? This can't be that tricky ....

Thanks!

Is your CD/DVD writer functional for normal precedures, i.e. reading/writing CDs/DVDs?
Some people have problems with their drive not being properly recognized, see if my post about removing filters helps.

I believe so. I've made at least one DVD and burned a CD without problems. I'll check out your post and see if that helps.

Is it ok to use two DVD's, which is what I used since the instructions do not say what type of disk to initially use.
