It's not necessary driver issue, but...

1. Do you have any errors in Device Manager, which would indicate missing driver(s)?
2. What program do you use to play your movies?

From what I've seen, that model came with Vista originally. But Toshiba does not include it in the list of models for which drivers are available for download.

It may be simply a matter of missing codecs...

Well, if the "HD-DVD" drive requires special drivers to read HD-DVD's, then codecs don't matter at this point.
