Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Installation problem I received a Formac Disk Mini as a gift. Unfortunately the packaging was accidentally destroyed so I no longer have the installation instructions. I have attached the device to my PC and it downloaded the driver and the PC now recognizes that I have attached a USB storage device but it does not open up and when I go to 'Computer' it is not listed. Can you help me? Thanks
