PLEASE SOMEBODY KINDLY HELP ME: How I can make recovery CDs from my USB HDD?

P: n/a
Tin
I bought a laptop and burned 4 recovery CDs for recovery purpose.
Instead of burning as disc images, I just copied and pasted these 4
CDs to my USB HDD as 4 folders called "RecoveryCD 1", "RecoveryCD 2",
"RecoveryCD 3" and "RecoveryCD 4". Now my laptop got problem and I
lost my 4 recovery CDs. All I have now is 4 recovery folders in my USB
HDD. I burned another 4 CDs as data discs from my USB HDD, but it
didn't work out (it didn't boot because they are just data discs). I
again burned my first recovery CD as a bootable CD, and it booted but
didn't automatically install XP, drivers and other softwares. It just
appeared some sentences on a black screen and cursor is waiting for me
to type after the text, "A:>". I wonder how I can burn my recovery CDs
from my USB HDD to be able to recover all of my window, driver, and
some softwares as my 4 recovery CD that I lost. Please help me
somebody. I'm depressed because most of my work for school is
dependent upon my laptop.

Better yet, the site/support of the backup/recovery program in question.
