Switching hard drive requires a bit of acurracy.the machine should be able to detect the drive before you can even use a cd for it. So please check the IDE cables and fix the well, and make sure they do not have brakages. check for power in the drive if not the I am afraid the drive might be crushed

just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps
