M1 Mac mini give me the does not recognize drive when I try to connect Drobo

I have setup a new M1 Mac mini and wanted to move my Drobo Dt to the new computer.

When I plug in the usb cable from the Drobo into the Mac I get the do not recognize the drive and wants to know if I want to format skip etc. I skip it cause I don’t want to lose any data but Drobo Dashboard does not see it and it will not mount.

Any suggests on how to fix this without losing my data?
