Add Hard Drive to Proliant ML350 g5

Hello.
 
I'm trying to add two disks to a Proliant ML350 G5 with bays 2.5 " SAS, hard disks are 1 TB 3.5" but not of HP. Iput two external extension since the disc does not come into the bays of 2.5 ".
I have found that the E200i controller BIOS detects no new disk, but if another 3 that are already runningit if HP 87GB. But besides feeding the disks I'm trying to add.
Update the computer BIOS and Firmware. And stayed the same.
Looking for internet server in different manuals I have found that the controller can only support SAS or SATA disks up to 500GB, so try to connect a sata disk 80GB 2.5 "to see if it detected me and I found myself I ate withno disk or detected me.
 
      1) How I can connect directly to the disks on the controller sata sas no special cables or adapters?
      2) What if I put a PCI Express SATA controller may operate discs? System and data?
      3) Do I have to compulsorily HP disks? Why?
      4) should not feed the disks but not recognize them?
      5) Any other solution to increase storage capacity?
 
Thank you very much everyone for answering.
