No. Sata is backward compatable, meaning it will run on sata II or sata III. It does happen. I once recently bought 4 motherboards before I got one that worked. It's not just your luck. Just hook it up to sata II0, and disconnect 1 of the cables from any other hard drive you have in the machine before you install on the next one. Sorry you're having the problem. Actually, it's Western Digital having the problem. You are just the one catching it. The cavier Black drives are usually good drives, noisy but good.
