Installation Issue

Post by BudT » Fri Nov 21, 2014 1:37 am

Newbie trying to install new dongle and keep getting "No compatible devices found" after I get to SDR#. I have tried on a Windows 8 and a Windows XP with no luck. Obviously, I am doing something wrong. Appears Zadig is loading properly as is SDR#. I have made sure that SDR# source is RTL-SDR/USB. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

Another user on this forum had luck with this problem by installing the drivers from safe mode.

Some USB 3.0 ports also seem to cause this problem, if you can make sure you are using a USB 2.0 port. Another thing to try is to use another USB port and reinstall zadig from there. Long USB extension cables can also cause trouble.

Also, i've tested hundreds of dongles in the past and about 1 in 200 appear to be faulty and show this message. If nothing works on multiple computers it might be faulty and should be refunded/replaced.
