Default Why is SATA drive showing up on IDE channel in BIOS?

I see a WD Caviar drive is showing up under and IDE Channel in BIOS.
I'm not intimately familiar with the BIOS conventions, wondering why
this is. Using a Gigabyte mobo.

The solution may be as simple as updating the bios for this
particular motherboard. SATA is a variant of IDE.
