Question

I cannot connect my D90 running BYN on Windows 8.1.

 

Things I've tried:

Rebooting machine from completely off

Vista SP2 Compatibility Mode

Windows 7 Compatibility Mode

Format the memory card

 

Recycle connection

Reboot camera

 

Any other suggestions are appreciated.

 

-Ben

Ben,

 

Welcome!

 

I am a Canon user, but from a connection standpoint, both brands are similar, so here goes.

 

What cabling are you using to connect your camera with the PC running BYN?

 

You need to connect a USB cable between the two devices for camera control AND you need an additional DSUSB (or equivalent) cable between the PC and the remote shutter jack on the camera.  The second cable is for BULB exposures.  The first cable is for everything else. With only the first cable you should be able to connect, see LiveView images in Frame & Focus and take exposures up to 30 seconds in length.

 

When you connect the USB jack on the camera to a USB port on the PC and turn the camera on, Windows should play a "new device" sound and you should see the camera somewhere in the Device Manager's list.  If Windows is not recognizing the camera then BYN will not be able to connect. If Windows does see the device but BYN is still unable to connect to it, then you may need to send Guylain the log files.

 

I hope this helps.

You do not need to use Vista SP2 for the D90. 

 

You're doing everything right, it should connect, especially after a reboot which resets the Nikon drivers/SDK.

 

Did you try another computer just to see i fit connects.

I should also disclose that this is a direct connection to a USB 3.0 port.  Not sure if that matters.  Windows 8.1 does recognize the camera when plugged into this port.

 

That could be an issue on older models.  Just a guess though.
