Hi, I currently have 3 discs of recovery data to reinstall windows. Usually, during installation, the system will prompt the user to insert Disc 1, 2 or 3.

Currently, my DVD RW drive is not working. Therefore, I am looking to transfer the data on the 3 DVDs to a single bootable usb (doing this on another laptop of course).

Does anyone know how to go about doing this? (including software needed etc). Thanks in advance.

Edit: Direct transfer without burning to windows first would be even better.

Moving to another device may not work either. If the software is designed for and expecting discs, then having it in another format won't work. I've come across this multiple times over the years, typically when trying to consolidate older media onto newer media (ie: floppies onto a CD, CD's onto a DVD, etc.).

If you are trying to reinstall Windows, then I suggest fixing the DVD drive issue.

External DVD RW drives are relatively cheap.

I actually tried to copy the files on the main disc (disc 1) to make a bootable USB and planned to copy files from disc 2 and 3 to individual folders respectively in the usb, with the intention to select those folders if prompted for disc 2 and 3. The USB was able to boot but when it was loading file, the system failed to detect any recovery media/files.

I guess I would just head out and buy a cheap external dvd drive and use it to load the disc and boot instead.

Thanks for the responses anyway.

[SOLVED] After pressing some key combo, I boot into emergency mode
I use Fedora 20. After pressing ctrl-alt-some function key, I entered emergency mode. Now every time I boot my computer, I enter emergency mode before I enter the normal OS. When I enter the normal OS there are no problems. How do I disable the auto-boot into emergency mode?
