dvd drive missing in post but available in windows

  [DELETED] 17:23 08 Mar 2006

I have a gigabyte GA7-DXR mb, which has 2 raid/IDE ports built on.
I have the following ide devices attached:

IDE0: master 60gig hdd
Slave: 250 gig hdd
IDE1: Master 200 gig hdd
Slave 120 gig hdd
IDE2: (RAID/IDE) Master 80 gig disk
Slave DVDRAM drive
IDE3: Master CD-RW Drive
Slave DVD-ROM drive.

The problem i have is on post, if the 250 gig drive is installed, then the DVDRAM drive does not appear.
(250 gig drive has to be on ide0 or 1). Windows does find it however.

Any known reason for this? or is there a way i can get it to find it? (as far as i know i can not force the RAID/IDE IDE2 and 3 controller to look for devices in the same way i can for IDE0 and 1 through BIOS)

I know it prob isnt the best way to connect up the devices but with cable lenghts and layout of my case, its how its ended up.
