I have hp pavilion dv6510ej laptop and recovery dvd disk.

Recently I have to format all my hard disk so I lost my recovery partition.

I want to restore my laptop using the hp recovering dvd disk, but I can't because my dvd drive doesn't work. So I tried to create a bootable flash drive using disk-on-key of 16 GB but didn't succeed.

How to copy my recovering dvd disk to a flash disk so I succeed to use it for booting ? Everything I tried doesn't work.

Thanks a lot

@Moab ummmm his dvd drive doesn't work, how would recovery dvds help...? –  John Aug 28 '11 at 17:43
Buy a USB DVD drive, its the only way. USB recovery cannot be converted to DVD's. –  Moab Aug 28 '11 at 17:54
