Hello, I have a problem with my Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA 3.0.. :(  When i Run Speccy it detects my hard drive as an IDE.. and because of this the S.M.A.R.T. Function is not detected but when i go through my Bios setup, it says [Enabled].. How Can This be? did i do something wrong? Do i need to reinstall my OS? :cry: 

My MOther Board is a GIGABYTE GA-M68MT-S2P

My other PC specs are:
4GB DDR3 PC1333 ram
AMD Athlon II X4 640
Sapphire 6770 1GB DDR5..
oh and i have one dvd drive i think its Lite on Lightscribe.. it is also sata.

Please..i really cant solve this problem... :fou:

You should be able to change it to ACHI mode in BIOS without reinstalling. This error might occur but here is the fix
