New SAS Drive in Old HP Server Not Showing Up

We have an old HP Proliant ML 350 G6 server. We had an old drive die in it and bought three new drives to configure in RAID 5. The drives do not ever show up in the HP Raid tool (in BIOS or in Windows). The drive lights do not even blink when the server is turned on.

If I take one of the drives out of its mounting hardware and put it in the hardware of the old failed drive, it will show up perfectly (even reports the newer larger size). I attached a picture of the drives. Can the new drives be made to work in this system?

Thank you both! Rindi's reply got me looking into the connection but I wasn't quite sure of the terminology yet. I am also going to change my raid type from his suggestion and get another drive. Andyalder got me to the link that I needed.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
