    It looks like this right?

    Upon further googling, it seems that this is a powered e-sata port (meaning that it's a e-sata port but is designed so that a special e-sata/usb male end can also draw power as well as gain the transfer speed advantage of a e-sata port)



    a regular USB cable should fit into it... this is gonna sound dumb but did you turn the try the usb cable the other way?
