Nikon D850 Connection

Question

Hi,

I recently purchased the Premium Backyard Nikon software. I have a NIkon D750 and D850 DSLR Camera. I can easily connect to D750 but the software will not connect to the D850. I have both cameras set in manual mode when I try to connect but the D850 cannot connect. I am using the appropriate drivers for both cameras from the menus. Both cameras are connecting to the computer I am using which indicates the link is OK.

Any thoughts or tips would be most welcome.

Cheers Ross

Please post in the BackyardNIKON forum in the future, this is the General forum.  I will move your post.

Are you selecting the D850 instead of the D750 when you are connecting your camera in BYN?

Thanks for the reply. To avoid any questions about setup, the software has created a second icon on my desktop so I have assigned a camera for each icon. When I try to connect each camera, I am careful to select the appropriate driver for camera I am selecting.

I am using the appropriate usb cable and connecting directly from camera to pc.

The cameras are talking to the pc as it asks me a range of actions each time ie transfer images etc.

When the PC recognizes that the camera is connected, you have said that it provides a list of actions. What are you choosing? Is "Take No Action" one of the choices? If so, please try this option. My thinking is that if you are selecting a "file transfer" option, this is recognizing the camera as a storage device rather than an imaging device and that this is preventing BYN from connecting.

Astroman 133,

I have disconnected all wireless plus bluetooth, taken out the sd card and only have a direct usb cable from camera to PC. The puzzler is that my D750 works perfectly. I am wondering if there is a setting on my D850 that is restricting the connection. The D850 is talking to the PC without issue.

cheers

Ross
