HDD does not boot

I gave a friend my external hard drive to get it filled with his stuff. But when I got it back and connected it with the computer, there was an error. It told me that I have to format the hard drive to use it.
After I searched the internet, I downloaded testdisk and tried some methods. Without success. I made some pictures so you can see what testdisk said:

On the last picture I changed the type from L(ogical) to P(rimary) because I read this could help maybe. It changed nothing but the result of the analyse in testdisk (difference between the first and last picture)
What do I have to do to use the hard drive again?
