Default SATA DVD drive disappears after reboot

Hello Everyone-

I am building a system and am using a GIGABYTE GA-945GZM-S2 motherboard, Intel core 2 duo E6420, 2GB DDR2 533 ram, 1 SATA Sony/NEC Optiarc DVD drive, 1 LG DVD Drive, and a Seagate harddrive. The LG drive and Seagate drive are on an IDE cable, the LG DVD drive is the Slave and the Seagate harddrive is the master. My first initial problem was in the BIOS, the FSB was only running at 200 (by default), thus making the CPU run at 1.6Ghz instead of 2.13Ghz. The DVD drive does not disappear after rebooting if I leave the FSB at 200. But when I put the FSB at 266 (making the CPU run at what it should), after every reboot the SATA dvd drive is not found. I would have to shut down the entire computer then power it up for the DVD drive to be recognized. I have updated the chipset and BIOS to the most recent version.
I would appreciate any help you could give me, I have worked on this problem for awhile and am completely stumped.

thanks in advance
