Icom USB Driver Reinstall Windows 10 Troubleshooting HRD and WSJT-X


I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

I have been trying to download and install the HamLib Amateur Radio Control Libraries. The files down load and save on my Windows 10 drive but when I try to install the software I get error messages that it cannot open the files to write them. Very frustrating.

Hi Rich ;
Being a new owner/op of a 7610 have much appreciated your tips/tricks in getting the conductivity going…
with that said… I’m NOT! ha . some reasonable success with HRD… and not so much with WSJT-X…Many of the same HamLib error reads as others… very frustrating… 3rd day into configuring the 7610…
any clues are appreciated.

Hi Rich,

I have watched several of your videos on YouTube but I am having a problem with the USB driver that came with RS-BA1. When I click connect on the Radio Screen or turn on the radio while the computer is running I get a message The Last USB driver loaded failed or something like that. I am having issues with transmitting remotely and have yet to get it working correctly. I have uninstalled and followed the instructions to install the USB drivers correctly.
Another question is will I be able to use this USB driver to run WSJT-X or another digital program?

Thanks very much,

Hello Rich,

My problem is with the IC-7600. When I plug the cable into the USB-B port – the back of the radio to any USB port on computer, the IC-7600 simply stops transmitting. I use Windows 10.

Wow, the last Windows 10 update (2004) did a number on many app settings. IC-7300 communications was now inop. The driver uninstall/reinstall did the trick. Thanks!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
