Neither D7100 or D850 being found by BYN

Question

Have BYN 2.0.10 Premium Edition. Have used it previously on another laptop with my D7100. Now, after several months have a new laptop, Win10 64-bit. Using Shoestring Astronomy DSUSB - with appropriate cables to camera(s) set on Manual/AF-Off. Drivers initialize for both cameras, but BYN cannot find camera. Either one (connected separately - not concurrently)

HELP!! Any thoughts what’s going wrong?

As I said in reply to your previous post, you do not appear to have the cameras connected to the PC correctly. You need a regular USB cable to connect between the camera and the PC, NOT a DSUSB cable.

Also, the D850 is new enough that you may want to upgrade to BYN v2.0.11 PRE-RELEASE to see if that allows connection to that camera, once you have the correct cabling.

Both cameras can do BULB exposures via USB.

In the future please do not post the same issue to multiple threads!

Sorry, but the short answer is that BYN is not able to control either of your cameras with only a DSUSB camera. The DSUSB cable can be used for BULB shutter control, but it is not required for either of your cameras. What is required is a regular USB cable to connect from the USB port on the camera to a USB port on the PC. This connection is ALWAYS required. It is used for connect and disconnect, setting image properties like exposure, ISO, f/stop, LiveView, and image download.  So if you used a DSUSB cable with either of those cameras in the past it was in conjunction with a regular USB cable.
