RTL - SDR STOP working, need help!

Post by minz » Sat Jun 06, 2020 2:49 pm

Hi guys,

So the problem is rtl-sdr stops working.
Recently i decided to jump on studing some interesting radio signals and found that my SDR doesnt work!

I tried to reinstall drivers, i tried to delete device but nothing helps.

So i started over. Download SDR software, zadig.

Launch zadig as an administrator. Choise RTL2832U as a device in List All devices option, replace driver.

In SDR it says Cannot accept RTL device. In RTL-SDR Controller menu i see Device - Unknown and below Generic RTL2832U

I think problem with Windows 10 updates which place this usb stick like an another device but none of RTL SDR.

Any options how to fix it?

I tried delete drivers. No help

Did Zadig complete and actually install the WinUSB driver? What does it say on the left of the arrow in Zadig after installing?

The problem seems to be with device itself. I tried to install it on Linux but rtl_test shows no supported tuner found :cry:
