Need help with several problems with W98

There are several things wrong with my computer.
I'll start with the priority.
cd/dvd-rw is not working properly.
I can read the files on a cd but can not write to the cd/dvd-rw.
In Roxio, when I send files to the cd/dvd-rw, Roxio starts then hangs.
Roxio seems to think it is writing but nothing is happening.

In 'device manager', there are yellow exclamation marks next to;
Primary IDE controller (single fifo) and
Secondary IDE controller (single fifo).
However, when trying to reinstall the drivers
the sys says the best drivers are already loaded.
The Standard Dual PCI IDE Controller has no yellow mark.

I do not know what to do to solve this.
Any help will be appreciated.


Sys is:
1.7ghz, 1g ram
120g hd
Hauppauge 350 PVR
Brooktree Bt484 TV card
Epson CX5400
