AS-604t external SSD via eSATAp cable

I'm interested in utilizing the eSATAp ports on the back of my AS-604t. I have a kingston 120GB SSD and bought a SATA to eSATAp cable. I was under the assumption that the AS-604t would power an SSD, however no drives I throw at it work. Do I need to purchase a powered esata cable instead or am I going at this in the wrong way?

Thanks for the help!

As far as I know, eSATA interface on AS-604T won't supply power to external devices. So you'll need to find external power to supply to your SSD.
