D5300 not connecting

Question

Howdy ---   I have upgraded (downgraded?) fromj my D5600 to a full spectrum D5300.   The camera firmware is 1.03.   It is visible to Windows, but neither driver set in the Backyard Nikon can connect.

I have tried both driver sets to no avail.   

Using Tether tools usb cable.

Thoughts?

Are you choosing D5300 specifically in BYN?  You have set it to remember previous selection and now it always uses the D5600 drivers.

If this is the case start BYN and go to Settings -> Advance Settings and select "Ask camera drivers".

I have the Ask box checked.    

My tether cable plugs into the Mini-B 8 pin connector.

My remote release plugs into the Micro USB slot.  Do I need to tether to the MicroUSB slot?

Yes, per the D5300 manual, you need to connect the microUSB port on the camera to the PC for tethering. You should also make sure that WiFi is disabled in the camera and that the memory card in the camera is nearly empty.

Sorry, I am a Canon owner. The cable that I use came with the camera. According to the D5300 manual, Nikon includes a cable, too. A UC-E17 USB cable. The Canon cable is a standard cable and folks often replace the Canon-supplied cable with a longer one.

I'm confused by this thread.

You claim in your original post that you have a tether tool cable and that Windows sees the camera.

What cable exactly do you have?

Windows sees the camera as what?  What does Device Manager list it under?

Send me the log file.

I could not find this in the D5300 manual...please point me to the right place.    I cannot find a 'proprietary Nikon Accessory cable usb connector ' to USB-A cable.

I have the Tether Tools USB-A  to MINI-B 8 pin...this plugs into the D5300 port labeled USB

Windows sees the camera as what?  What does Device Manager list it under?

It shows it as an external disk drive.

Send me the log file.

I am sending two log files.   One for each type of driver selection.

You may need to tell Windows not to set up the SD card as an external drive. This may be preventing BYN from connecting.

I believe that the Tether Tools USB cable is connected correctly for BYN. This is confirmed if Windows is able to access the memory card to support image transfers.

Also be sure that WiFi is disabled in the camera and that the SD card is nearly empty.

The two log files in your previous post show two different errors.

The first shows a "Camera Not Found" error. This could be due to windows accessing the camera as a storage device.

The second shows that BYN is getting an access denied error when trying to read its configuration:

2020-06-07 18:06:56,209 [Main] ERROR - An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\BackyardNIKONv2.0\ukltygqd.tmp' is denied. (C:\Program Files (x86)\BackyardNIKONv2.0\BinaryRivers.BackyardNIKON.Start.Camera1.exe.user.config)

   at System.Configuration.Configuration.SaveAsImpl(String filename, ConfigurationSaveMode saveMode, Boolean forceSaveAll)
   at BinaryRivers.Basics.Configurations.SettingManager.SaveCache(Boolean force)

Did you have two instances of BYN running?

You need make sure Windows sees the camera as an imaging device, not a an external drive.  This is your root cause for not connecting.

As for the other error Rick mentioned above it seems like a windows permission issue - maybe.

It is unrelated to your connection issue.  However, you may want to re-install in a separate folder and see if this error goes away.

Keep us posted.
