Toshiba drivers for Hard drive required before installing new hard drive?

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.
