Found these while snooping around Toshiba’s notebook drivers.
They work on any make of drive (not just Panasonic who’s drivers they are)
They are for both Win2k and XP, and have multi-language support.
Dates June 2005, these are the latest drivers I have seen.
This driver can be used to format DVD-RAM disks, it seems to do a better job than Windows/Nero formatting for me anyway.
The Download is big (64MB) so dialuppers beware.
If needed I can upload an english only version (~3MB) of both Win XP or 2K
Driver can be found here : http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/downloads/sl25dvdramx.exe
