Windows 7: SATA DVD not showing / Something wrong here?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
SATA DVD not showing / Something wrong here?


Firstly, I changed all my settings in my bios to AHCI and my Jmicron controller 363 to AHCI + IDE. Now, my DVD drive won't show up in my device manager and there are multiple controllers under IDE ATA/ATAPI that weren't there before. Any ideas on how I can get the DVD drive to work under SATA and fix the multiple channels under the IDE ATA controllers?

Thanks. The pic is below.
