Cannot get my eSATA drive to be recognized on my DVR Moto QIP7216

I bought an eSATA hard drive from Amazon

Fantom GreenDrive 1TB USB 2.0/eSATA Desktop External Hard Drive GD1000EU

My DVR is an eligible model, Motorola QIP 7216

I bought an eSATA drive, but it only came with a USB cable.

So I bought an eSATA to eSATA (M/M) cable, and connected it to the DVR

Went through the process of adding more memory, and restarting the set top box, but it still won't recognize it.

Can someone please help? Am I doing something wrong?

The IMG software on the STB needs to be 1.9.  What version do you have?
