Alright i recieved a new SDR in the mail and my computer still refuses to recognise it.
I also tried both sticks on a different computer and they worked fine. any ideas? right now i'm thinking the usb controller is being funny but all my other usb devices are ok

I managed to solve this problem by downloading DX888's .zip file and following the instructions

Apparently this new generation of hardware doesn't play nice with windows 7

I had the same problem after I downloaded the latest version of SDR# (1.0.0.1702) and tried to run it in a fresh install of Win 10 v1903. "install-rtlsdr.bat" did not install "rtlsdr.dll" in the sdrsharp-x86 directory.
I copied "rtlsdr.dll" from an older working SDR# directory and all was well with the 1702 release!

if you have trouble with RTLSDR on a modern motherboard with USB3 controllers, try to place rtlsdr.dll from my ExtIO plugin: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4710&start=10#p11551

I build it from the latest RC version of libusb and it should works ok on such motherboards, because this bug is fixed in the latest versions.
