    external HDD isn't recognized

    Hello all.
    I bought USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE cable, so i could connect HDD to my PC for backup.
    After i installed the driver that it asked me, the HDD appears in "my computer", and i format it.
    then i started to move files to the HDD when suddenly an error message appears and told me that the HDD is no longer available.
    since then it doesn't shown in "my computer" but when i enterd Device manager --> Disk drivers --> appears USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE Device USB Device.
    when i entered Disk Management i get the following message (see capture1).
    when i accept the request, i get an error message (see capture2).
    what can i do now?...
