Win XP not recognize my dvd drives

Windows XP home is not recognising the fact that my optical drives are plugged in. I have checked all the connections and device manager knows that they should be there but has an error saying cannot find this hardware. There are no driver updates available either. I have 2DVDrw drives one IDE and one SATA both have been working fine for months and months so what is going on?
