On my notebook (Win7x64), I only need to restore the DVD player software. Yes, I could restore the factory default system from the HDD or my self-made recovery disks, but according to the manual, this is an all or nothing process. This is really the last thing I need, because reinstalling all my other software after a factory default reset would take me a day or two.
After hours of searching for a solution in vain, I'm desperate for help, please.
You want to install the preinstalled DVD player software? This tool isn’t downloadable for Windows 7 64bit and can only be installed from recovery disk with the whole recovery image.
But why installing a DVD player? Just use VLC media player that can play a lot of more video and audio files. It’s nice freeware tools and makes DVD player software unnecessary. You can download it here: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
All additional software that you got with your notebook is part of recovery image and Toshiba doesn't offer this software for download. So if there is some problem with preinstalle software you must install the whole OS.
In your case you should use some other software. You can find a lot of DVD players for free and the best one is VLC player.
I use it for a long time and it is perfect. So I also recommend you to install it. you will be happy with it.
