Slow throughput to a SATA hard drive

We have a Proliant ML350 G5 server running windows 2003. We just bought an Icy Dock which is basically just a external docking station for a sata hard drive. The icy dock has an E-SATA port on it. We have a WD 1.5TB Sata 3.0Gb hard drive docked in the Icy Dock. The Icy Dock is connected to the server through the onboard SATA port. For some reason, when we perform backups to the drive in the Icy Dock, the backups transfer rates are pathetic. We are getting about 200mb/minute. We were getting about 1100mb/minute with our USB drive. What is going on? I thought we should have been getting better throughput than the USB drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
