Driver issue

Post by VE3EAR » Sat Oct 05, 2019 11:36 pm

I would like to use an RTL-SDR Blog V3 with HDSDR on my PC running WinXP, but I see that there is not a Zadig driver that would work with that combination. Is there a work-around to this, or will I have to get a more modern PC?

Tnx & 73, Bruce, VE3EAR

There are XP versions for Zadig available on their site https://zadig.akeo.ie/downloads/

They are not supported, but it should work.

From the Zadig web site, I downloaded the zadig_xp-2.3exe file, which is the only one that seemed to work in my WinXP PC. When I click on Options, and bring up the list, "bulk-in, interface (interface 0)" does not appear in the list, nor do I get in the Driver boxes "RTL2832UUSB v64.1.521.20)" > "WinUSB (v6.1.7600.16385)".

Thanks for any help you can offer me, Bruce

Are you sure that you're plugging it into a USB 2.0 port?

Also check in Device Manager if the dongle shows up.
