  6. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Hi thank you guess I missed Guylain's post. However I don't remember any such menu but I will surely check again today.
  7. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Guylain suggested checking the camera's menus to see if there is are communications options settings. If so, the choice allows the camera to either be connected as a storage device or as a portable imaging device. You have not said whether this is the case or not. If PTP is a choice for communications mode, change to the other option. I would re-connect the camera after changing the mode try again to connect with BYN. Again, I am not a Nikon owner, but there are several out there and I know that some of them have a D7100. Please chime in with any suggestions. Thanks,

    Any updates anything else to try? just wasting my trial version days
  9. I was highly hopeful of enabling bulb mode on my D5100 via USB relay board, and the first one I bought was HID which does not assign a COM port (I was not aware such a beast existed, now I do). So I bought a different USB relay that is assigned COM5, but it's not KMTronic - it's SMAKN LCUS-1 (http://www.icstation.com/lcus-relay-module-ch340-intelligent-control-switch-relay-module-smart-home-p-12488.html). I have tested it manually with my Nikon D5100 using the KMTronic test app, and it works, but the relay ON and OFF commands are different i.e. instead of FF 01 01 for on and FF 01 00 for off, it's A0 01 01 A2 for on and A0 01 00 A1 for off. Am I overlooking something (like a config file)? If not, any chance support could be added? Thanks!

  11. Another Usb Cable For Nikon - It's Working!

    Thank you. I will do that.

    You should create a post in the Feature Suggestion Box forum to have Guylain look at adding the support for your USB relay module. I would also say that Guylain likely prioritizes the list of enhancements and there have been several others with broader appeal so it may be a while before you see this, if at all.

I have tested it manually with my Nikon D5100 using the KMTronic test app, and it works, but the relay ON and OFF commands are completely different. Instead of FF 01 01 for on and FF 01 00 for off, it's A0 01 01 A2 for on and A0 01 00 A1 for off. So, it doesn't work on BYN, I presume because it uses different code? Am I overlooking something? If not, any chance support could be added? Thanks!
  14. This is a sticky for me , re watched it again last night, refreshed my meomory on how it is easy with BYEOS to use ascom drivers for the focuser wheels etc.. \this is as good at it gets!
  15. Deactivating Remote computers

    Ok Merci Guylain! Discard mon message prive :o)
  16. Deactivating Remote computers

    Thanks will do!!!
  17. Deactivating Remote computers

    You do not need to worry about that as license are *not* locked to a computer per say.
  18. Deactivating Remote computers

    You should probably communicate privately with Guylain about this.
  19. Deactivating Remote computers

    Hello! I did astronomy sessions in the past at other locations, If i have doubts that the software is being used under my license, what can be done to deactivate BYEOS onthese 2 other computers. Can i request a new License key and the activate it under my computer and IF others try to use the BYEOS on there side they wil have to purchase their own licensing, the reason why i am asking this, \i don't want to be stuck without my BYEOS copy if 2 are under the same license. I don't know if this is clear enough guys and gals. But i can repeat in french if needed ! Cheers and thanks

    I would expect it to show up as a Portable Device, as my Canon does, but perhaps the Nikon driver is different.
  21. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Hi Just plugged in and checked again, in windows device manager, it shows at the end in the Universal Serial Bus connection as Niikon D7100
  22. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Ah that I have not checked let me check it right away 5 mins ill be back
  23. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    As a menu option? It says USB? Nothing like PTP? I'm asking because I think the camera connected to the PC as a storage device and not an imaging device. Where does it appear in Windows Manager?
  24. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    its just has the USB connection which I am using.
  25. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Other software may not use the Nikon SDK. Does the D7100 has a PTP / PC Communication menu option? If yes try the different options.
  26. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Yes, exactly. windows does recognize and i see it in device manager. Another program also detects it and connects and i can take images and live view. Its just BYN i am unable to connect by any means
  27. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    OK, so Windows is recognizing the camera because you see it in the Device Manager, but the Nikon SDK initializes successfully, but is not able to see or communicate with the camera. I am at a loss for further suggestions. This is where not being a Nikon users puts me at a disadvantage.
  28. Unable to connect the Camera D7100

    Hi All, Yes, i have an account for Nikon and i tried when logged in, same error So far i have done this and no luck yet " To perform a reset you need to manually choose the reset option in the Shooting Menu and the Setup menu. To do this press 'Menu', select the Shooting Menu and scroll through the options until 'Reset Shooting Options' is highlighted, press ok, highlight 'Yes' and press ok again. Repeat this for the Setup menu. Another option is to simultaneously press and hold the QUAL (image quality/size) button and the +/- Exposure Compensation button for 2 seconds. "
