Can't Use MY BOOK for Storage with FIOS DVR, as has eSATA Input :-(

Hi, trying to find a workaround so that I may use my 2013 2 TB WD drive (WDBACW0020HBK-NEWM) as extra storage with Verizon FIOS DVR. Problem is must use the eSATA input on DVR, and my older drive has USB 2.0 out. Any ideas, other an USB>eSATA converter?
I’m aware WD makes drives specifically for this purpose: (, unfortunately cannot afford at present.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.



I’m not sure if the adapter will work as the firmware information on the drive might be different.

Let’s see if any of the users on the community can share some information about it.
