Im trying to copy a recovery disc to multiple discs....?

I ordered a recovery disc for one of my laptops but it keeps coming up blank when i insert it. My other laptop reads it fine so I copied all the files to that comp, sent them to the comp i need it for. Now im trying to burn the disc since i know itll read its own format. But its 5.13gb, just over the capacity of the dvd-r it can burn. Is there a way to make it a multiple disc, recovery disk??? I dont even know if this would have booted properly anyway, just running out of ideas. Any help? Can i somehow boot the comp with the files i have on here?

    So what is the basic difference between the two computers, or are you having problems with the optical drive ?
    You would need special software to span multiple medias, and afterward that probably would not work. Try copying it to a USB and using that on the problem computer.
