    Hi guys, iam brand new here so i hope this is where this goes...I have a toshiba satellite notebook that has something wrong with the driver. When i go to burn a dvd now or even a cd it tells me to attach an external drive, or the area where you choose which location to burn to is greyed out. I can't seem to look up the model number on the Toshiba website, the number on my receipt is A70wb200e, while the number i brought up using the system itself is mfwt020acp08. Any help would be great, thx!

    Hi and welcome. Look at the bottom of the laptop -- I think they put the model number there.

    Also, did you get a user's manual, it should be listed there as well, and I do think that it's on the laptop too in a .pdf format.

    I'm not a man :rolleyes:

    How about a little history behind the problem. I'm assuming it used to work? What happened since? Did you install some burning progam(s) or UNINSTALL some burning program(s). Anything like Daemon Tools installed or anything similar that would create a 'false' drive.
