cd-rom and cd-r dives have disappeared

  Legolas 19:33 12 Mar 04

Both my cd-rom drive and cd-r drive have suddenly disappeared from 'my computer'. There are yellow exclamation marks next to both in device manager and the error message for both reads

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling them with no change.

They are being recognized in the BIOS and after uninstalling and restarding they are being found by windows but they are not being installed.

Anyone have any ideas.
