CD-ROM's Dissapeared

  RJP50 18:12 02 May 03

All of a sudden both of My CD-ROM, and CD-Writer have dissapeard. I'm running WIN XP PRO

In Device Manager the follwoing is displayed against both of them

"Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)"

The both open and close and light up when a CD is inserted.

The last thing I remember doing was updateing the BIOS, but that was weeks ago, and they are both still recognised in the BIOS settings.

Any ideas as to whats happened

All help greatfully received

Try checking that the cable connecting them to the motherboard hasn't come lose. If they're on the same IDE cable then both would stop being recognised if it came loose at the mobo end.
