SDR# sounds like device is disconnecting and reconnecting when I hit Play.

Post by KG5VOO » Sat Jun 09, 2018 10:01 pm

This thing (RTL-SDR V3)used to work fine but since a windows 10 update,it's not working.
When I hit play, I get a "no device selected" error.
So, I un-installed everything and re-installed using the quick start guide.
Everything installed fine, and I can choose the correct USB device, but then the weird thing happens.
Everytime I hit the play button, I get the sound from the PC of the device disconnecting and reconnecting.
But, I get no receive transmission.
I increased the gain, per the quick start guide, but it still doesn't work properly.
Any help would be appreciated!!!

Thanks,
Dave

Can you check in zadig that the correct driver is installed? Should be the WinUSB one. Double check that rtlsdr.dll is in the SDR# folder too.

Also upload a screenshot of your settings if possible.

Everything is right according to the Quick Start guide.
I'll post a screen shot in the morning, as I am just getting ready to sleep.
It just seems weird that when I click the play button, it makes the sound like it is disconnecting and then reconnecting the RTL-SDR.
Thanks for the response.
