D850 disconnecting

Question

Hi,

I am testing BYN with my D850 using Voyager accessing BYN through the TCP server.  I can connect and take images successfully but after a few images the camera disconnects.  I have attached the log below -is this a USB cable/hardware connection issue (using <1m USB cable direct to PC) or is it something to do with Voyager/TCP server?  Thanks for your help.

Camera disconnect are typically caused by a bad usb connection of even a usb cable saturated with data.

Try a different cable. 

Could something be going to sleep?  HD?  USB Port?

Thanks.  I've tried a much shorter cable ~10cm length and so far no disconnects so it looks like that was it.  Glad it was an easy fix and looking good for using Voyager via the ASCOM dSLR driver and BYN.

Usually for USB cables under 3m (10ft), the issue is Quality of Cable rather than Length (however, there are lots of Laptops and some Desktops which have subpar USB Ports).
