Have you tried putting the optical drives on the controller card and the hard-drives on the motherboard?
Another thing you could try is updating the BIOS. The IDE port on the motherboard is already a separate IDE controller - the southbridge has no IDE support at all - and this has given some people compatibility headaches. Adding another controller may make it worse. A BIOS update could fix this.
