Q: Creating System Recovery Disk for Windows Vista Home Baski

I am trying to create a system recovery disk for Windows Vista SP2.  I have tried using DVD-RW and DVD+RW disks.  Each time the disk is ejected with a message to install a blank disk.  The disks ARE blank.   Is there a different format I should use.
