System won't recover from CDs

\015 Recovery CDs don't contain a file called preinst5.swm. Therefore recovery fails to restore system back to original manufacture default install. System does not boot and ntldr is missing. Shouldn't Toshiba have to replace a defective set of disks with new ones for free? They want to charge $24.95 which is absurd. Any Ideas?????\015
