Exclamation Help!

My CD/DVD drives are not loading. When I go to Hardware Config they've got yellow exclamation points with the message:

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

1. I've deleted them and reinstalled them with new drivers - result - no change.

2. I've tried EVERY (about 10) system restore to back when they worked. - result - none of the system restores will load.

3. I've run Norton Windoctor to restore/update all .dll files - result - no change.

I'm about to go on a murder spree. What could be keeping the drives from loading?

Neither of the two drives are newly seated. They both worked before I installed some software (Pinnacle Video editing). When I installed the patch for the program it wouldn't work. I uninstalled the program/patch and neither of my CD/DVDs have worked since.
