Sounds like they scewed up your system management, I would take it back to the repairer and request they fixed it.

Just to check- can you see them in Device Manager?

There was a bug with burning software a while back- if you uninstalled the burning software, the icons for the CD drives would disappear in My Computer.

It could be worth a look inside the case to check if the drives are connected correctly- primary on primary, secondary on secondary- CD drives should be plug and play.

Yeah they are connected BIOS recognise them

In Device Manager, double click on a drive and see what it says under Location and Device Status.
