Oh wow! Do I feel your pain or what!? I spent 4 hours on this problem in the Charlotte, NC airport trying to copy pics of my grandkids to a CD. Just as we boarded the plane I found the solution.
Toshiba uses a drive that can only function as a CD or as a DVD - not both. So you've got to switch between the modes to get the functionality. To do this, got to My Computer and right click on the CD/DVD drive and select "Properties".
Next, select the last tab (it says something like recording or CD recording. In that tab will be a check box to enable CD recording. Uncheck the box, and click OK to exit the dialog. I can't recall if it needs a reboot or not. You'll use this "trick" to switch between CD and DVD recording.
This presumes that you've loaded the appropriate software to run the DVD drive from your Toshiba disks.
If this doesn't fix it, then further troubleshooting is called for.
