In Device Manager, open the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers tree. Right click on each channel and select Uninstall. When all the channels have been uninstalled, reboot the PC and let Windows re-install the devices.
Hope this helps.

I am having this same problem. I did as your instructions stated. Everything reloaded except the driver for this device. Is there a driver that I can download and install manually? This device was working when I purchased this pc and Windows 7 - 64-bit was the originallly installed working system. All I can think of is that an update somewhere along the way caused this device not to work. Please help! This is very frustrating. =(
