Issue 1  >  Solved.   It was the 3 meter cable. I changed the cable and it works.

Issue 2 >  I plugged the old cable with the USB 3.0 Port and is telling me that I have to format the hard disk before I can use it.

If the drive is totally new, sure, format it.

Usually new drives (only drive, no usb) needs formatting.
Usually drives bought as one usb don't need formatting.

I cannot format my used hard disk because there is data in it and if I transfer files there is an error. Even ejecting the hard disk is a problem.

The new hard disk is not even being recognized and has been partition successfullly with the old USB 3.0 cable.

Is the PCI card defective?

what OS are you using?  XP ?

is the card showing without error in device manager?
anyway - since this is a desktop, connect the drive directly to a sata cable -  then you can run any software  - much fast er - and you'll have a better error support (not on usb)

I took my PC to a repair shop and we discovered that the PCI card was not connected to a power line. Now it is working fine.
