PowerEdge 2950 upgrade HDD


I have a PowerEdge Dell  2950 server and recently  I’ve bought 4 disks ST4000NM0025 Seagate Exos 7E8 Enterprise

3.5" HDD 4TB 512n SAS for an upgrade, but they are unusable in this configuration.

 I cannot acces them. The server has 6i controller.

The software installed on the server is Windows Server 2008 R2

I’ve tried to update the controller’s software and now I have SAS-RAID_Firmware_F96NR_WN32_6.3.3-0002_X00.EXE   installed.

Could you help me with this issue, please. I want them to be functional, so what is to be done?

Is there a controller that supports the HDD and the server in the same time?

Or is there an update that I can use?

Thank you in advance for your answer,
