Why usb cable is not working with hard drive?

I bought a usb cable which is not working with my 2 external drives. I believe there aren't any problems with the ports, the usb cable is working just fine with my graphic tablet. Also external drives work fine with another cable i've test them with. So i think it has to do with the cable itself. If someone... show more I bought a usb cable which is not working with my 2 external drives. I believe there aren't any problems with the ports, the usb cable is working just fine with my graphic tablet. Also external drives work fine with another cable i've test them with. So i think it has to do with the cable itself. If someone knows, please explain me why my external drives won't accept it.

That's the one I bought and not working
