SDR dongles do not work with USB 3. Try an older USB port.....
So SDR dongles don't work with USB 3, all SDR dongles ?, for the RTL-SDR dongle it is not mention in the data sheet.

The RTL-SDR works just fine on USB 3.0.

However, some early USB3.0 controllers were very buggy and don't always work well with USB2.0 devices. This is where you might run into trouble.

You can try this solution :
1. follow procedure for install driver (zadig)
2. Unzip sharp folder
3. click on "install-rtlsdr.exe" (open firewall if necessary)
4. ok, the dongle work correctly

If i don't execute "install-rtlsdr.exe", Sharp indicate "Device not found or not connected" i have the same problem.
