Problems! System wont detect CD Drives anymore!!!

My system will not detect my AOPEN 12x40x DVDROM drive and my PLextor 121032A anymore! Events leading up to this: my bro installs W2k, not needed so we undo it... THen W98 starts giving blue screen on bootup saying that CDRWPD901) cannot be loaded at +0000AD23 or something, in short, it lost the burner for burning, its still there with the drive letter G: under my computer...
I think, lets try isntalling new firmware, so i install that, reboot, and all of a sudden it waits a long time when detecting IDE drives and it doesnt detect my DVROM drive or my Writer at all anymore?!?!?!? Its nowehere in sight under windows either!!! I need help, i have no CD reading or anything now!!!!

Please please if you have the slightest clue please do speak up, my thanks
