It may be possible to do that if a number of things are true.

Basically you'd have to insert a pre-formatted dvd. I forget the name of the format but it is for using cd/dvd's like removable or hard drives. You can read, write and delete from them. I never tried it before so dunno.

Personally, I'd use a usb flash or hard drive. or use networked media.

It would be a snap to do all this with a live cd/dvd or usb. Could even boot to a floppy to boot from internet.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

I normally use a Linux Live CD (Puppy Linux) for this, which you could create on another computer. You then drag and drop your own files onto a flash drive. I've found it a very handy thing to have for diagnostics etc.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
