My CD drive isn't working. So, is there any way to create windows recovery/repair software in flash drive/usb. This is the s/w which we use if system fails to boot.

There's no generic CD to USB converter... They're just not the same thing. Making it boot on USB is more akin to making it boot from a hard drive.

An external USB cdrom is a good tool to have for cases like this.
