I am trying to install a new WD scorpio blue hard drive in my Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5983. When I try to use my recovery media (the one I made when I first got the laptop, as the official recovery media I purchased specifically for this purpose will not even attempt to install), it prompts me to install drivers for the hard drive before it will begin the formatting process. Is there a downloadable set of drivers for this purpose? WD says the drivers must come from Toshiba and are the generic hard drive drivers that are used. I have replaced hard drives in other machines before without this problem, and this needing drivers is rather.. annoying. Thank you in advance.

Yesterday I installed a WD500 Blue in my Toshiba L655-5072 after receiving the Recovery Media (3 disk set) from Toshiba for $29.99. No problems.
