Motherboard detects Sata SSD drive but not normal sata drives.

Hi, may i ask if someone could help me with a rather bizarre problem please?

I have this biostar motherboard

G41D3C :: Motherboard :: BIOSTAR

Now running Windows 7 64 on it fine using an ssd connected through sata. When I try and connect another sata drive thats not an ssd it just doesnt show in the bios at all. I have 5 other normal sata drives and they are all the same yet when i plug them into an external usb enclosure they are seen fine by windows but i want 2 of them to be permanently in the system not usb.
I have a 750w power supply so i presume that isnt a problem!
I have tried changing settings in my bios but to no avail. Also tried different cables but when i try a different cable with the ssd the ssd drive is fine so i presume the cable and power are fine. Tried the ssd in another sata port and it's fine. Anybody any thoughts on why my normal sata drives are not showing the bios apart from the ssd please?
