I could be wrong but I think that often "Mass storage controller" refers to an external drive (likely a USB key or external hard drive). Do you have any of those plugged in? Unplug every external devices and reboot and see if it's still there.

I haven't used 8, but older versions of Windows generally refer to them as "USB Mass Storage Device(s)" or something similar. The controller is something else entirely.

Most likely an SD card slot or similar.

Have you tried the obvious? Google the PNP ID, that will positively identify the device. From there you can install the proper driver.

Go to the Toshiba site, select Support, select your particular model, and look for Download or Drivers or some such tab. What OS did the machine have on it when you bought it? If the hardware is old enough, there may simply not be a driver for the device. If the hardware officially supports Win8, it should be there.

A common tactic is to right-click on the device with the yellow exclamation point, choose Unistall, and reboot. Sometimes this will prompt the OS to install the right drivers on its own.

On the other hand, if everything that you are using is working fine, you could ignore it.

This really belongs in the Win8 forums; please post any new inquiries there: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-73-388.html . Mods, I'm not moving it to ensure that OP will be able to find it.

That's just the PCMCIA slot. Unless you're using it, or plan on using it, you can just ignore the lack of a driver.
