Trouble installing an eSATA external hard drive

I put a 2Tb Samsung SATA HDD inside an ineo external case, taking care that it connected as a SATA drive inside. I connected the eSATA-eSATA cable into the external case at one end and my PC's eSATA output port at the other. I then plugged the external case into its transformer, threw the on-off switch, and the light lit.

I cannot find the hard drive in Windows 7. I don't know where an eSATA device displays in Device Manager, but I cannot find it. Nor do I see it in Hard Disk Drives in Computer.

Yes, I've rebooted the PC several times and asked Windows to discover a new device. Everything else works fine and has for a year.

Suggestions?
