  1. Past hour
  2. I discovered the issue. I was leaving my lens in the auto mode and it would attempt to focus before shooting. Duh. Switch to manual and no issue.
  3. I'm trying to use BYEOS 3.1.14 for controlling my XSi next Monday. I have been using BYEOS without problems for 5-6 years. I point my camera at the sun with the filter on, focus in Frame and Focus mode just fine, but when I try to start an imaging session I get a General camera error that results in the crashing of the software. I have tried a bunch of different USB cables and they all do the same thing. Any ideas anyone?

  10. Hi just purchased BYE classic. I set it up [in settings] and taken a 1s daily shot jut to test it for later on tonight. I clicked on Drift Align and it seems to slightly freeze and almost nothing happens! I just notice a windows [under BYE] opens [well its taskbar icon actually - not t he window and I can read on the window icon on taskbar this: FormFullScreenImage not responding. Sometimes there is no 'not responding' and I can see it gets over that FormFullScreenImage bit and the Drift Align on right side appears [i.e. it enters Drift Align mode] and I do not see the 'white' image or fullscreen = nothing in Live View [I am in daylight with no lens - just a CLS filter - it is ready to work!] and also no crosshair over-imposed image as well. Camera is fine and correctly detected as a 100D, nearly new and works in live view either manually or using other free programs! The problems is, BYE does not start Live View = Drift Align has problems - if I do it manually all seems is fine and crosshair appears, etc.. Do we have to start it manually? If so, that is silly ... I mean ... really! Is it to do with detection or settings? Any fast help for tonight? [UK - now is ~ 18:00H] Regards PS my computer is 'perfectly' fine - no problems and I only had 4-5 blue screen in 6 years [ due to Chinese non-original external devices and bad drivers!]
  11. Uninstall and reinstall in a different folder to make sure the new installation is isolated from the first. If this is an installation gone bad this to fix it. Regards,
  12. RC2 did it, thank you!
  13. Also, if you want to take pictures with the shutter button, I would suggest you first disconnect BYE from the camera and unplug the camera from the PC. in other words, when you are tethered to the PC you should only control the camera from the PC. Do you have other USB devices, besides mouse or keyboard, connected when you are testing BYE with the camera. It could be that the PC's internal USB hub is saturated. This happens with low-powered netbooks, all-in-ones, and tablets.
  14. Select the Downloads tab and select pre-releases from the Categories list on the right-hand side.
  15. I have tried 3 different cables hoping that was the problem. The issue persisted across all of them. Where is the pre-release area? I can't seem to find it.
  16. Have you tried a different cable? The Canon SDK is not at all tolerant of trying to use a flaky or intermittent connection. I would also suggest downloading BYE 3.1.14 RC1 from the pre-release area. It fixes a couple of issues that folks have reported with 3.1.13. You can install it in a different folder so your current version will also be available. I do not expect that the upgrade would have an impact on the crashes that you are experiencing, but it would help you avoid other issues down the road.
  17. In Settings / LiveView remove the Checkmark from "Maximum Sensitivity".
  18. Normal Software = Everything on the disc that shipped with the camera. Picture Style Editor, Zoom Browser, RAW Image Task, Camera Window, Camera RAW codec, EOS Utility, and Photo-Stitch. NONE OF THE ABOVE WORK WITH THE ORIGINAL DRIVER. Under the original driver BYE will open and connect to the camera with the 210 driver. It just will not work with this driver. It will not image, it will not populate anything but Bulb, AV Platform, and Program, whatever they are other than bulb, I have no idea. BYE will not allow changeing the ISO speeds, nor will it image. Install the compatibility driver EOS Kiss_N_REBEL_XT350D WIA DRIVER, and all of the " normal software works, all of it including the EOS UTILITY. I close all of these programs especially EOS UTILITY, and BYE will not see the camera AT ALL, it says it's not connected or powered off. I am not a computer idiot, I beta tested for MS for years, and worked in their Hardware Support for three Xmas seasons. I have built, sold, and maintained more custom computers than I care to remember and built numerous websites. I don't write code, or program, and know just enough to get into trouble with a camera. With the compatibility driver I really have no room to complain with Canon. It works just like it did when I bought it, and that's all I asked of them. My problem stems from the fact I have a 12 year old piece of hardware (camera) that I bought eight years ago ( Canon didn't stop building them or marketing them in 2005) and it won't work in anything "current" when it's attached to a computer. I "get it" and accept it, I don't understand it, neither do I have to like it. Microsoft is one of the most predatory competitors I have ever seen, they never approach ANYTHING without a purpose, and that purpose is only to promote their profit ( as it should be ). I just shudder when they hand out candy because the real purpose is about to crack your head open. All you have to do is look at the latest candy storm, Windows 10, for free, right, why don't I believe them?
  19. I am new to the BYE program, and I am having a couple of issues. My biggest issue is I keep getting the following error message: "BinaryRivers.BackyardEOS.Start has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available." I have attached a picture of the error message. I am using a Canon EOS Rebel t6/1300d. Sometimes the program works like a dream, but most of the time I either get this error message and have to close the program, or my camera locks up and keeps saying "Busy" after taking a couple of pictures. Also, even though I have the "Save to" location set to camera, when I take pictures by pressing the shutter button with the camera attached to the computer, it will not save the images to my camera. I really hope someone can help me figure out what I am doing wrong. I want to use this program for the eclipse in a few days.
  20. I backed up the computer system image of the C drive, and tried installing the new EOS utility from Canon. There is no change in behavior. 1. I can use the Canon EOS utility to download files from the camera, and the CR2 and JPG appear correctly on the hard disk. 2. I can use a USB adapter for the memory card, and the CR2 and JPG appear correctly in Windows Explorer. 3. I can use BYE during imaging, and the CR2 and JPG are downloaded to the laptop correctly. 4. What no longer works is that the CR2 on the Camera can't be viewed, copied, or anything done with them directly thru Windows Explorer. The Local Disk that shows has 0 bytes, and a cut and paste copies nothing. I can do everything I need to do with the camera and the laptop. If 1,2,and 3 continue to work, I'm good. Out of curiosity, if anyone seeing these posts knows the reason for #4, I'd appreciate a post here. BYE is a nice product. I enjoyed my imaging session using it. Thanks!
  21. So I am using BYN for solar imaging and have a couple of questions. Is there a way to override the preset exposures for focus and realtime view? Every time I leave the section to image I have to reset the ISO and shutter speed from hi and 2 seconds when I come back. I am trying to use a tripod at times without my mount and it makes things difficult. Thanks Dave
  22. Which software is included in "all the normal software"?? Does EOS Utility work?? Work such that it can cause Exposures and Display the result?? (This would be a BIG CLUE)
  23. Yesterday
  24. Guess that explains it...
  25. I don't know
  26. You did not provide much information, so I have questions... Which version of BYN are you using? Does Windows recognize the camera? Which version of Windows? What files were you looking for on Dropbox? Provided by whom? If they were provided by Guylain trying to help someone who had a similar problem, can you provide a link to that thread?
  27. I, too, cannot connect my D500. The log shows no other info than the camera is unable to be found. Have tried multiple cables with no success. Program can still find my D7100, but it usually takes a few tries. I attempted to install the files provided to another member via Dropbox but the files can no longer be accessed. Thanks!
  28. Thx, I will try those suggestions. Could there be an issue with my laptop only having USB2 connection?
