How did you disable the dvd drives in the first place? Check the wires of course to be sure they are firmly pushed in. Also check the jumper settings.

You should only disable the drive that is configured to be the "slave" of the channel. If you remove the "master", the "slave" won't be able to function. The "master" can work alone on a cable/channel, the "slave" can not.

There are jumpers on the drives where you can configure if it's slave or master. Make the drive you need to remove "slave". The other that always stays on should be made "master".

EDIT:
Oh, you meant you removed them *both* and when you enabled them again one of them didn't work?
