SDR Error Code 3

Post by M0ZJO » Wed Oct 30, 2013 6:59 pm

Hello all

I am trying to get the python wrapper "pyrtlsdr" working on Windows, it works fine on Linux
It imports correctly but prints the following error when I try to initialize the Dongle:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\M0ZJO\Desktop\RA_Astro\FFTPrint Test.py", line 4, in <module>
sdr = RtlSdr()
File "build\bdist.win32\egg\rtlsdr\rtlsdr.py", line 60, in __init__
% (result, device_index))
IOError: Error code -3 when opening SDR (device index = 0)


Can anyone help? I would be very grateful!

Many thanks

Jonathan/M0ZJO
