    Doesn't work?

    Does the handle not move? Does the caliper not squeeze the rotor? or Does the caliper squeeze, but not hard enough to stop the wheel?

    any other details you can think of?

    the caliper squeeze but not hard enough to stop the wheel... I adjusted the pads but still it is not hard enough to stop the wheel...

    bleed the brake, you have air in the system.

    + 1. If you haven't done it before it might be worth having a shop bleed it for you. There are a couple of youtube videos that will show you the process.
