Did you check in the bios to see if it is set to autodetect? If you have the mobo manual refer to it.

If the dvd drive is being detected it has to be either the jumpers are not set correctly or the ide cables are not connected correctly. Are the hdd's connected to the end of the ide cable? If you are using cable select on the jumpers set them to master. Also be sure you have 80 conductor ide ribbons and not 40 conductor.
