Not quite it

Hey! Thanks for replying. I downloaded the Driver but aopn opening it, the Toshiba Archive Extractor begins the process and immediately gives me this error message:

Error occurred in opening archive. [114]

It won't let me do anything other than exit the application.

That is the series but you can check the toshiba site for your model. Folk on the forum will look for you if you supply the full model number and OS (example XP SP3 64 BIT).
