Hi rickyounie.
Go to Device manager and remove both of them. Do not reboot yet.
After you have removed them from Device Manager you'll need to remove a couple of registry entries.
Click Start>Run and type "regedit" (no quotes) in the run dialog box and hit your enter key.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. In the box on the right, delete the "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" value only.
Exit the reg and reboot your system. Windows will redetect the drives and there should be no hardware conflicts in Device Manager afterwards. Any burning software that does now not function will need to be re-installed.

Since the PC is working fine - just save this for future use.

In the event you do start getting problems, uninstall the device in Device Manager and reboot to let Windows redetect it.

If it still doesn't work, then it may be time to update your motherboard drivers.
