I am surprised different drivers would work. The device does show up OK with the 
present driver in Device Manager.
Just can't figure out why the thing scans all the time. Seems odd to plug in a 1/8" 
plug but...

Also - I have no idea what you meant about burning your finger on the antenna 

I don't touch it for one thing. Why would I?
