Question

I am using a MAC Pro with a VM of W10 and every time I start a session for any duration it takes 1 picture then it says busy and doesnt take anymore pictures. Then when the time is up the software disconnects from the camera.  Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong.  I spent hours in the comet to find out it didn't take any pictures.

Please search the Forum Posts for references to VMWare - there are several individuals who report SUCCESS running BYE under VMWare.  But there are several pitfalls such as providing USB Driver Support for the Windows OS.

 

The good news is:  Several Users are using BYE with 6d-mkII....

Yes, it is likely that the lens is trying to autofocus, but is unable to do so, so it won't take the picture.

There are two solutions to this...1) put the lens in manual focus mode or 2) your camera may have a custom function called Shutter/AE Lock button. Read the manual and you cam move the autofocus function to another button, so a shutter press does not cause the lens to try to autofocus.
