Need help installing hardware on an m5a78l-m lx plus

Ive just installed an ASUS M5A78L-m lx plus motherboard and although I use an IDE to SATA cable, the board won't recognize my Pioneer dvd drive. Is there a speacial setting I need to use in BIOS that I'm overlooking? So, to wrap it up, without a detectable dvd drive, I can't install winxp onto my SATA HD that is recognized.

  1. on the back of the drive you have jumpers for ,Master/Slave/Cable select and some DMA
    Remove the jumper or put it on Cable select and give it a try.
