compaq recovery tools disk

hello, i have the above pc, i have just been reminded of something i still havnt done as i couldnt work it out when i had the pc!
when i had the pc it kept giving me prompts tp create a recovery disk, which i did, no probs, it went on to tell me if i wanted more space i could remove my recovery partition on my hdd.
the problem:
when i select recovery tools from pc tools, i get a window asking 1) create a recovery disk. and 2)use recovery disk.
i select create recovery disk, system says place a recordable cd in drive and close draw
when i do this (i only have single burn and re burnable dvds, not cds)
a promt comes up saying no media, do you want windows to a) burn files with sonic/ media player or no action whatever i select it says please select files?
is this because i need cds not dvds? the recovery disks made themselves no problems.
btw the only thing i've ever burnt is my recovery discs which was onyo a single use dvd!
hope this makes sense.
thanks adam
