Failed to read PREINST6.swm error code 020150-20-00000000

I have made three attempts to create the recovery disks from an out-of-the box Satellite E205-S1904. Each time, the Recover Media Center gets about 80% complete on the first DVD burn, judging from the status bar, and then crashes with the message: Failed to read the following file: D:\ZZImages\ZZImages\PREINST6.SUM Error code: 020150-20-00000000 How can I recover/work around so that I can burn the recovery disks? Thanks. --Steve

More digging on the Internet indicated this error might be due to bad media. Tried a new batch and different brand of DVDs and the Recovery disks burned as advertised.
