Question about Toshiba Satellite P30 P35 Series Notebook
I have a P30 that I can't complete a reformat and restore operation on. Since my internal DVD writer did not work, I used an external drive to start the process with my factory recovery disk. When I went to re-boot my computer to complete the process, it would not recognize my external drive. When I try to open Device Manager it shows no devices listed at all. At first it did not recognize my flash drive, but now it sees it.
I ordered a replacement DVD drive which came in today. I installed it and my P30 will not recognize that drivel. It spins up and the light comes on, but that's it. Is there a possible workaround to reformat and restore my files such as working from the Command Prompt? I am running XP.
