Reinstall the device use the drivers and firmware found here:Lite-on for the Lite-on LTR-40125S. Check out the utilities they have there as they can prove to be quite useful. As for the other drive Im not sure, but you need to do the same.

Tried the download at Lite on. Came back back with error message: when I went to run: (error no drive detected.) Could I have both drives bad?

This is just me but I would remove both drives then try one at a time to see how Windows responds to each one. Start with the lite on make sure to use the latest firmware /drivers. When you reboot after reinstalling the device if Windows likes it, it will say "new hardware found" or something along those lines.

Both of these drives are IDE types, if you install them one at a time make sure to set the jumper on the rear to Master, and have the drive on the Master connector, this is the one on the end of the cable.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Have these drives...previously functioned properly in this system?

If so...are there any errors in Event Viewer which refer to either drive or disk?
