Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

I am in over my head. There are a hundred updates and I have no way to find out which one is causing my problem. I am thinking about abandoning this tower. It is not portable anyway. I need to find spectrum analyzer software that can run my sdr# dongle in a windows 7 environment. All I see is Linux ...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

It looks like you havn't run both zadig and install-rtlsdr.bat. The windows driver screen shows no driver installed, and the folder shows no rtlsdr.dll file. When you run the bat file it should download zadig as well as the rtlsdr.dll files. Is there something preventing the bat file from running n...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

Will do. I launched HDSDR on the Toshiba Satellite to make screen shots showing where it fails. That is when I found out that Print Screen doesn't work. I consider that a major system failure and don't know how to fix it. Anyway I plugged in the DVB-T-DAB-FM thing. I call it the dongle. Then with no...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

Since I know my device works on one computer and it doesn't work on two computers, what should I be trying to get the correct environment? Look for different software, I have no idea where? Uninstall all the updates? Uninstall all the other applications? Format the hard drive and start over? Does an...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

With the Toshiba Satellite, I added rtlsdr.dll to the unzipped folder rtlsdr-x86 and saw no effect so I included all the files that came in the zip. Still no effect. Then I looked in Device manager and saw three drivers and uninstalled them all. Tried install-rtlsdr.bat again and no driver was insta...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

Got SDR Sharp to run on the Lenovo tower! When first started it buzzed and crashed the computer when I tried to change frequency. The second time it tuned to a FM band station but had a snapping in the sound. When I tried to change frequency it crashed again. There are three drivers showing in the c...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

What driver do you see installed in device manager? I see this in both machines: win sub.sys 6.1.7600.16385 win7_rtm090713 Does zadig run correctly and allow you to install the WinUSB drivers? yes After running install-rtlsdr.bat do you see the file rtlsdr.dll in the SDR# folder? No. I see only SDR...

Re: sharp sdr# does not show a devise in conroller box.

I guess I am in the 1%. I ran the install batch and when I click on the gear, the top line "Device" is blank. This happens on both of the failed computers. Device manager says the driver is working properly. More background: The device I am trying to run is marked DVB-T-DAB-FM. I have installed the ...
