Recovery CDs have to be burnt for all imaging programs. You do this best at the beginning of your imaging experience. The imaging programs provide the facilities for burning the CD.
The recovery CDs are needed to restore images. They contain the necessary software to manage the recovery process and will guide you through that process. You load them by changing the BIOS boot sequence to boot from the optical reader.
