Default What happened to my cd/dvd drives?

lol my computer hates me.
One day my drives are working, and today theyre gone, and i cant find them in my computer, in device manager i get this message for both drives.

Quote:
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
my computer was probably as drunk as i was and got all discombobulated.
I checked bios, checked the connections.. IDK wtf happened
