    The default firewire driver in Win7 is broken, so make sure you go to the device item in the Device Manager and change the driver to the 'Legacy' driver. That might help!

    Go to support then Downloads then Discontinued 
    under PowerSDR and down load the .exe and the Release notes file for version 2.7.2

    make sure you  see the radio under the FLEX Firewire driver. 
    Not sure if this version will work any longer if you did the firmware update for the NON-Flex PowerSDR version

    Hope you can get it going

    It has nothing to do with PSDR version.
    As Neil pointed out, Check the fire wire driver,,it should be Lagacy. Or make sure you have the correct driver for your Fire Wire Card,,Win 7
