Windows 7: Unknown device in USB controllers

18 Jun 2010   #31

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Hi, I am having same issues with Peak DVB-T Digital USB Stick.

I have downloaded the Win7 drivers .exe file from Peak website (this one: but I receive same message as OP
Attachment 36657

This installer seems to load drivers for XP and Vista but does not seem to create any folders for Windows 7.
If anyone has successfully ran the driver pack perhaps they could confirm if it creates folder for the Win7 drivers? Or even better could upload the inf file somehow?

I just want to be able to watch the World Cup in the garden!!

Thanks if you can help!

Windows 7

Just use the vista drivers,

IIRC it doesn't give a win 7 folder so you just use the ones in the vista folder.

I got mine working fine with that driver in the end. Still got the message you are getting but it does work if you point it to the inf file.

In case you dont know how to do that (because it confused me for ages) you want to find the device in device manager

right click and select update driver--> browse my computer for software --> let me pick from list.... --> click have disk --> then browse to the vista folder that was extracted when you tried to run the driver exe from the peak site.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Thanks for your reply.

Just tried the Vista (x86) drivers and I got an error message (I'm using Windows 7 64bit). I tried the file in the other x64 folder which seemed to load OK but still not finding any channels.

I emailed Peak and they stated that the model I was using was not compatible with W7 (Edit wrong model No.) however the seller has stated it is W7 compatible and I'm sure it actually had a W7 compatible label on the packaging (will check this tonight!).

I've tried the most of the different methods on this thread with no joy.
I am going to try and get it working on my old XP desktop to confirm it will work and take it from there
