Default Sata

Well I have a sAta hard drive and DVD but I don't see them when I'm in XP
in my Hardware config I have a question mark beside "raid controller" which mean it doesn't have a driver - is there a connection? I installed 2 usb ports so it may be it?
the thing is that on the restart I can see the Dvd (not in the bios, in the second screen) - the Hard drive is not connected.
So the computer knows and recognize the DVD but it doesnt show it ad a drive in xp (sp3)
do u have any suggestions?

Default Re: Sata

XP doesn't come with SATA drivers, Google the model of the DVD and hard drives for the sata drivers and install them.
