You need to install the SATA driver that came with the controller.
It's not a controller, it is just an expansion bay bracket. It has an eSATA port and then a cable that plugs directly into a SATA port on the motherboard.
On a random note: I have that same drive, and I quite like it.
Never used it with SATA though.
