i have a packard bell computer about seven months old came with xp pre installed and a recovery disk i had the option to create master discs which i chose to do.however after doing this i checked the discs for errors using the recovery disk and smart restore and both say the discs have errors on them.i have contacted packard bell and am awaiting a reply but would like some advice on if i can get replacement etc due to this.thanks.

are the master discs floppy or cdr? if cdr they could have been burnt at the wrong speed and your recovery disk could be just fine.

thanks howard60 the masters are cd and they need to be used when the recovery disc is inserted it asks for them.however this is now resolved i recieved a reply from packard bell saying that so long as they were made on branded discs they will send out a replacement.didnt expect to hear from them so soon.
