Try Troubleshoot compatibility, and go for XP SP3 (32 bit if you get a choice)

Did it. No joy. Even downloaded an earlier version of zadig

Hmm you're probably runnng into the known USB 3.0 issue with older USB devices. Unplug the RTL. Go into your motherboard BIOS and in the USB settings... look for something that mentions USB 3.0 or XHCI. There will be an option to disable that and run in EHCI or legacy mode only -- this forces your USB ports back to 2.0 mode. Save the changes and reboot. Windows will detect the change and install drivers. Then insert the device and it should be detected now.

Don't worry you can always revert the changes back if necessary. My SDRs do no work with this xHCI mode.

If this does not work then try in a different computer to verify the device even registers. You may have just got a lemon.


NOTE: MICROSOFT HAS PATCHED THIS PROBLEM AND IT SHOULD NOT BE AFFECTING ANYONE NOW

Updated the SDR instructions for the new year. It's much easier than previous versions. This is the best RTL SDR on the market. No more calibration issues. It has a metal case now. It's worth the $26 + tax.
