Default SATA CD-ROM w/ a7n8x-e deluxe

I am trying to connect a sata cd-rom drive (plextor, PX-712SA/SW-BL) to my asus a7n8x-e deluxe motherboard. There are 2 sata spots on the motherboard, but i am having a hard time making the cd-rom drives work through them. do these sata ports even support cd-rom drives, and how might i configure them if they do?

thanks for any help.

You may have to go into the BIOS and enable to RAID option in the 'advanced options' menu. You should have something in the manual about enabling the RAID Drivers, and that's assuming you installed them with the motherboard.

Well, I wound up just buying a pci card to accept them. I think the on-board SATA ports accept HDDs only, best I can tell.
thanks for the help, though.
