There's two things you can try (these are the easiest)

1. System restore
Restore does not erase your personal files and is reversible.
click start
click all programs
click accessories
click system tools
click system restore
check the box that says restore my computer to an earlier time, click next
select a bold date on the calendar, a date before the problem started, click next
follow through with the restore directions
restart the computer after it finishes
if the system restore does not work, select an even earlier bold date on the calendar and repeat the procedure
try this with at least four earlier dates before giving up and trying something else

Then there is this other solution that has worked in other XP systems:

left click start in the lower left hand of the screen
left click run
type regedit
left click OK
Now the registry editor will come up
double left click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
double left click on SYSTEM
double left click on CurrentControlSet
double left click on Control
double left click on Class
double left click on {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
look on the right side of the window for upper filters
right click on upper filters
left click delete
windows will then ask you to confirm deletion
left click yes
look on the right side of the window for lower filters
if you do not see lower filters, you may be out of luck on this one.
right click on lower filters
left click on delete
windows will then ask to confirm deletion
left click yes
Close all the windows that are open
restart the computer

As far as firmware, there is none except that which is contained IN the drive itself. You don't need to load anything into XP to get a drive to work. But there are manufactures such as Dell that have proprietary motherboard drivers, to make devices connected to the board function.
If the drive still won't work after trying the above, you can look up your computer by make and model, on the manufacturers website, and download all the motherboard drivers, you can try reinstalling the original board drivers from the manufacturer.
Turn off the anti virus and firewall, install the drivers, restart the computer, turn the antivirus and firewall back on.

Then if it still fails, you can repair install XP. This does not erase your files but you should still back up all your files before doing a repair install. Back them up to a thumb drive, or an online service such as MOZY.
Look in this XP forum, fourth post from the top, for the directions to do a repair install. The repair will usually fix any issues that exist.
