I assuming you are plugging your pluto SDR into the computer
and have tried various ports.
Get a copy of rtl_test.exe on your computer, and install it
some where convenient.
, or just google rtl_test .
My case I created a rtl_test directory on my C drive:
rtl_test -d 0 (This will show lost/dropped data between
the computer and your SDR dongle)
If you get a continuous stream of dropped bytes try
[RESTARTING] your computer.
In my case a second had laptop has and issue
starting/communicating with the USB ports. By restarting
after first turning the computer on the communication issue
resolves it self with only a few random drops here and there.

I have a pair of Pluto SDR's and they both are acting up on
me. They randomly connect/disconnect from the host PC.
Additionally, when I attempt to connect to them via ethernet,
they often go offline (the ethernet USB dongle lights go out).
I have a solid 5vdc power supply hooked to them (I use the
same PS for my RPi 4's with no problems).
I thought maybe the latest firmware was at fault (0.34) but I
converted both SDR's to DragonSDR (0.33) and I still have the
My best guess is the Micro USB connector is failing on both
SDR's. Has anyone else experience this problem? If so, is it
easy to replace the connector?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
