I have the SMART features enabled in the BIOS of my PC, yet SpeedFan still doesn't recognize the SMART features of my hard drives.

try siw, and check if that displays your smart data : http://www.lemonfiles.com/details.php?progid=9016

I'd not put too much efforts into making speedfan working on every aspect.  Don't get me wrong I use and love it, and it does work properly with my maxtor and seagate drives.  But for HD SMART features you are much better off to use WD's free utilities to monitor it.

The other problem could be that your HDD is not yet supported (Although unlikely). Keep checking up for updates and maybe they'll build in support, if that's the problem.
