I would go to the newest version (F9) for your region; updating the BIOS certainly won't hurt you, but I'm can't say for sure whether or not it will resolve your issue. Did the SATA drives ever work? If so, it's possible that a BIOS setting changed, in which case I would say that you should reset the BIOS to factory defaults and see what happens then.

What I meant is did the 2 SATA drives you mentioned (1 HDD and 1 DVD) ever function, or did you just install them and can't get them to work at all?

No, I have a different motherboard; I'm just going by past experience in general, not specifically with your board. It's possible that your BIOS has the SATA ports disabled, so you may want to check and see if you need to turn them on. Also make sure that the SATA data cable and the SATA power cables are both securely plugged in at both ends.

At this point, I'd start with updating the BIOS and see what happens. If that doesn't fix it, we'll try some other things. Just make sure that all of your SATA and power cables are connected correctly, and if you have another SATA cable, try that to make sure the first one isn't bad.

I don't use the same motherboard or BIOS as you, so I've never used F6 or F9. Updating your BIOS is likely to either fix the issue, or be a step in the path of fixing it though, so that's why I recommended you do it.
