Recovery Laptop Vaio

Hi there,

Have received a Sony Vaio Laptop today which recommends that we back up our system to CD's incase of any loss of data.

We have some CD-R cd's which the manual says you shouldn't use. Would using these CD's cause a problem and would it be okay if we did?

CDR's hold around 0.7GB data , a DVD holds around 4.7GB
If it's to make a recovery disc of the whole operating system it's going to be at least 1 maybe 2 DVD's worth as it were.
If the manual specifically says don't do something, then don't do it. Has to be a reason.
