After an unexpected reboot my DVD & CD-RW Drives are NOT recognized (get a CODE 39) by Win XP Home Ed.

After my system unexplicably rebooted by itself it stopped recognizing my DVD ROM & CD-RW Atapi Generic Drives!
I went into Device Mgr. and there are 2 Yellow ! Points and when I tried to Upgrade Driver the message I got was that they couldn't be recognized and a CODE 39! What does this mean? Can I do something to have them recognized WITHOUT having to RE-INSTALL my OS?
In addition BEFORE this happened the Drives were reading sporadically, sometimes they recognized the media inserted and sometimes they didn't. Also the DVD tray used to get stuck where I had to open it using my fingernails. Don't know ... maybe they're dirty?
I had tried to find Updated drivers for the DVD & CD drives but being "Generic" I don't know where to go on the Net to find them!
I've had this sys for 3 yrs already.
I'll appreciate any help on this as this JUST HAPPENED by ITSELF!
