I am new to this forum, but I would like to set the stage for the setup and problems that are occurring.
I have a 2008 MacBook Pro 10.6.8 running VMware Fusion 3.1.2 (virtual machine) with Windows XP Professional loaded and I have Nikon D 5100. As of yesterday, and following all directions, I was able to connect the camera with the 2 cables mentioned in the directions (one cable is the one that came with the camera and the other is the cable sent by SteveRosenow (I believe the cable is the MC-DC 2_USB).
This required telling the USB and the computer to let the camera connect to the windows side. The camera gets connected successfully and the COM Port is 10. I went into the device manager to confirm that, that is in fact the correct one. Unless it should be something different? Also charged the battery and so forth. What I am noticing is that when connected I am unable to download an image. Basically the shutter is not triggering and then it terminates the event after 120 seconds.
Any hints, help, guidance? Or if you want to point me to a direction of a post with the same issues that would be greatly appreciated.
I just wonder if the setup with the mac, virtual machine, windows loaded, drivers... are the issue. Again, after due diligence and a few hours the camera is able to connect, but from there, no luck.
