Default Drives not detected!!


I've literally been putting together my new PC, but my CD and DVD drives won't get detected. When I turn on the PC, the 'POST boot shows it has picked up a 160GB Sata II Hard disk. However, when I go into the BIOS there's nothing detected. The DVD drive has power, but is also not detected in the BIOS which means I can't install anything.

These are the specs:
Motherboard: Asus P5Q PRO
HDD: Seagate ST3160815AS - BARRACUDA 7200.10 160GB SATA-II
DVD: Sony AD-7203S-0B

Any input would be great peeps.
