Default Computer not recognizing my cd and dvd drive??

A couple days ago for no reason both my cd drive and my dvd drive do not show up in "my computer"? I went to the device manager and it says:

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

Does anybody have any ideas what might be causing this? I haven't done anything to my computer so I am completely clueless?

Thanks

Brent

may be the ide cables got loose or something. I think you should check that.

First off check the cables to make sure they diddn't get loose (tends to happen time to time) 2nd off make sure it's displaying in the bios if it isn't check the jumper on the drive (very rarely but sometimes jumpers can fall off)

if not try it in another comp if you can.. If nothing here works, your drive is fried :/

I have tried new IDE cables and still a no go? My floppy drive was gone also but I went into the device manager and some how got the floppy drive to reappear in my computer? Maybe the IDE port is shot on my motherboard?
