Sounds like you have a messed up install of Easy CD Creator. I've had the same issue when i was running it. the problem is the direct CD that comes with it. it tries to make a CD act like a Floppy Disk. I've heard of issues similar with Nero but I've never had issues. either uninstall and reinstall Easy CD creator or uninstall it and change to Nero software for burning CD's .

You can try to format the hard disk and reinstall software.
But the symptoms suggests the hard disk is not usable. You may have to replace the HDD. But first try formatting it.

Installed new hard drive into Toshiba M35X-S163 due to old HD completely breaking, installed new 320gb HD, but the recovery disk from Toshiba doesn't want to work, keeps 'cycling' the recovery process,...


You will need to talk to whoever you got the HD from. It should have come with a format disk since HD have barely changed over the last ten years they can still be setup for just about anything form FAT16 to the latest Mac use.
The reason you are having troubles is that the HD doesn't know what format you are giving it. Whenever i have bought a new HD it comes with a disc to format then you are good to use the OS disc to load up it is possible that the recovery disc is setup only for a Toshiba setup HD and not another generic format. you might what to call the toshiba help line (800) 457-7777 that is straight from their website. Best of luck my friend

Cannnot open windows


i think you will have to try to install a fresh copy of windows i suppose you are using Windows Xp, try repairing it but dont press "r" when it tells you that there is windows loaded, press"r" on the second time, this might repair your os, but see that in any case u dont allow the computer to get formatted. if it tells you that the hard disk is corrupted and u need to format it dont format it cause u say that there is important data inside, so remove the hard disk from the computer and connect it to one of your friends computer take out your data and then format the hard disk and reload the software once again

STARTUP ISSUE ON TOSHIBA 4015CDT


Your BIOS is probably not set to boot from a CD-ROM. Luckily I have the same laptop so if you press and hold the "c" key when it boots up and keep holding it until it beeps at you it will then boot from a cd. You could also press esc and go into the BIOS if you're adventurous.
