Just received 2 new X220 thinkpads - I'm attempting to burn factory recovery disks on a lenovo USB multifunction cd/dvd drive.
I receive the 'error unexpected error occurred (rc=9)' when attempting to burn the disks - I came across another forum suggesting that the first disk is a CD and the rest should be DVD - This worked to burn the recovery media - however when I inserted a DVD to continue the rest of the recovery media I receive the afore mentioned error.
I have gotten 1 of them to complete a full set of disks - 4 in total. The other one, no such luck.
Anyone else out there having similar issues?

I got that error too! It turned out to be bad media. I tried a new pack of DVD's and it went away.
Hope this helps!

I have same problem. Did you do backup immediately or after instaling 3rd party software? I am wondering if daemon tools causes error. I remember that after clicking on Q disk, recovery window appears. Now I need to use recovery creator from start menu.
Is any possibility to get recovery disk from lenovo for free?

Seems to be I have found solution after I noticed that my usb cd-rom always lost connection with computer just before finalizing disc. So all what i did ... i just plug additional power from USB to my ICY BOX (it can work without adding power to it) and after all i was able to finish creating my Recovery Media. Hopefully it will helps. It does for me good luck.

I was having a similar problem with a Desktop.
I was using DVD - discs and switched to a CD-R for the first disc and then used DVD+ discs for the rest.
Switching from DVD - to D VD + fixed my problem.
