SATA - IDE Adapter on DVD Writer

Hi there!
Well, this is an odd problem and an odd configuration of mine, but probably any of you can help?
So, I have a Silicon Image PCI Card which provides 4 SATA connectors. On two of them, there are Maxtor SATA harddrives and it works perfectly.
Now, I have a LG DVD Multiburner, IDE, and an adapter for connecting IDE drives via SATA cables. I want to connect that LG drive to the SATA PCI Card.

Kernel 2.6.9 recognizes the LG drive somewhat:

ata1: SATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0xE881AC80 ctl 0xE881AC8A bmdma 0xE881AC00 irq 19
ata2: SATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0xE881ACC0 ctl 0xE881ACCA bmdma 0xE881AC08 irq 19
ata3: SATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0xE881AE80 ctl 0xE881AE8A bmdma 0xE881AE00 irq 19
ata4: SATA max UDMA/100 cmd 0xE881AEC0 ctl 0xE881AECA bmdma 0xE881AE08 irq 19
ata1: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133, 320173056 sectors: lba48
ata1: dev 0 configured for UDMA/100
scsi0 : sata_sil
ata2: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133, 320173056 sectors: lba48
ata2: dev 0 configured for UDMA/100
scsi1 : sata_sil
ata3: dev 0 ATAPI, max UDMA/33
ata3: dev 0 configured for UDMA/33
scsi2 : sata_sil
ata4: no device found (phy stat 00000000)
scsi3 : sata_sil
  Vendor: ATA       Model: Maxtor 6Y160M0    Rev: YAR5

SCSI device sda: drive cache: write back
 sda: sda1 sda2 < sda5 >

SCSI device sdb: drive cache: write back
 sdb: sdb1 sdb2 < sdb5 >
Attached scsi disk sdb at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
And then, nothing more! It finds my harddisks and adds them as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb, but no /dev/sdc which would be that LG drive. Does anybody have a clue on this?

Thanks very much!
