Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes

\015 I bought my toshiba satellite A215 laptop in february 2008. model # PSAFGU 05F01D I didn't try to burn a CD until May. I insert the cd, try to burn an itune playlist. The CD reads the playlist and then it initializes. Then the CD ejects and I get an error message. "an attempt to burn a disc failed. unknown error 2131."\015\012\015\012I brought my laptop to an apple store, showed them what happens and they told me it was a software problem with toshiba. But in an effort to help, they searched and found that there were hundreds of users encountering the same problem. They found a link where I might be able to down load corrective measures over the internet but they would not let me stay and do it at the store. I was leaving town for the summer and never addressed it. Now I am back and can't find that link. and not even sure I will know what to do as my tech skills are basic.\015\012\015\012In the meantime, I've downloaded the most current version of itunes and I think the error message is different.\015\012\015\012Do you know what I am referring to?\015\012\015\012Thank you, Susan\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Same again.. no burn from ITunes to Toshiba laptop burner..\015\012\015\012Should I buy a usb connecting extenal burner?\015
