I have a USB dongle with nRF24LU1+ chip (marking "NRF E LU1P16 1438AD").I have several problems with programming this chip via SPI.

Then I'm trying to check the result with `RDSR` and I'm getting `00000000`, why?Also I try to erase InfoPage with `FSR` set to `FSR_WEN | FSR_INFE` followed by `ERASE_PAGE` command. Then I read this page to check if erase operation was successful, and I get the next sequence....
