ESXi 5.5 Upd.1 and Toshiba STOR.E Basics USB drives

I've got this problem:

We use servers, which are virtualized with ESXi Hypervisor. And the Windows OS uses the STOR.E BASICS 500GB to backup their data.

Now a hard disk of this type is broken down, the hard disk is about 1 year old.

So I want to exchange the hard disk with one of the same type, only newer, but now ESXi doesn't realize it.

In a Windows OS the drive works fine, but ESXi I've got no chance! I've tried 3 disks, but it doesn't appear in the vSphere Client as USB device.

All other disks work fine, it doesn't matter if it is USB 3.0 or 2.0.

Tomorrow I'll get a WD external USB hdd to test, but maybe someone knows the issue.

Any experiences?
