    I have a Buslink model FW60 72E but when I connect it to my computer it is not detected. I can't get it to recognize it at all. My computer is a 64 bit desktop with a quad core Intel i7. It has Windows 7 OS. Any ideas?

    It may just need to a drive-letter assigning to it:

    Make sure it's connected to PC & power supply.
    Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management
    In the bottom-right panel, find the ribbon which relates to the Buslink drive (no drive letter, and it may say "Raw").
    Right-click that ribbon & choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths"
    Click "New"
    Choose a letter.
    Click OK
