Can I create just one recovery disc? I just need the CD as the DVDs worked, but the CD failed.

I have an older model Vaio - VGN-FS550.  I tried making a set of Recovery Discs.  It calls for 2 DVDs and one CD.  Each time I try creating a set, it fails after creating the two DVDs.  I've now wasted 6 DVDs, but still don't have the CD.  Can I just continue from where it left off and just create the CD?  I used DVD-R and CD-R, which is what it calls for.

You would need to create all of the disc for it to use properly.  Here are some trouble shooting tips you can try:

1. Try creating it with a different media brand

2. If possible, try it with an external USB optical drive
