Can't Connect BYE to Canon T6s



Failure connecting to Canon T6s

BYE version: 3.1.18 Premium edition
Dell laptop/Windows 10 64 Bit

When I press "connect" a window comes up that says . . . Select your camera driver. I select the top choice for DIGIC 3/4/5/6//7/8. 

Then the "Connection Problems?" windows comes up.


20:56:09  BackyardEOS 3.1.18 Premium Edition
20:57:41  Attempting to connect camera...
20:57:41  Canon drivers 'Canon\' initialized.
20:57:41  Camera Not Found!  Make sure it's connected to the PC and turned ON :)


On the laptop, I CAN disconnect the cable from the T6S and connect it to my Canon 5D Mark II and it connects without a problem.

I CAN also connect BYE to the 5DMII from my PC as well. But not to the T6s.


I just read some other tickets and one asked if Windows can see the camera, it does not. But as I said the same cable connects to the 5DII. Is there a menu item that I am missing that would stop windows from seeing the T6s?  

ANY help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

By the way this is an awesome application!

That was it, thank you!   This camera is new to me so many new features etc.   Its funny how your mind works on things during the night.  I woke up and immediately started thinking that I had to turn off the wifi for the usb port to work.  Thank you for your help and confirming the diagnosis!
