These are the specs for the player:-

Assuming I've got the right device, you can see the formats supported are listed at the top. I've had a look at the Toshiba website, and there are no downloads for your drive, however, I think you can get the user manual from here:-
Its worth checking out, because there may be a firmware update option in the menu which may help.
From what I've seen, it has an operating system, if so, check the menu options here, see if there's a System Update option. Again, that could update your codec lists.
Finally, this is just a guess, but if there is an operating system, its probably Linux, there should be a software download option, see if you can download and install a programme called VLC media player. Its about one of the best.
