  1. i tried this, got it to work but once the pic starts to download onto my laptop it freezes then boots out of the programs?

  2. Big Thanks for the advice!! It really works.. I’ve been searching for months, and you make my day!! Thank you thank you thank you…

  3. Great!!! First I thought that something wrong with my D2xs. . . coz its working well with my D70s before (windows XP/Vista). And I try in D90 it also didn’t work. So I browse to the internet looking for a solution, and I found this tip. Thank you so much brother!!!

  4. tried this with the D600 and version 2.12.0 running on Win 7 64 bit and still no camera detected.

    any ideas??

  5. Just like Bigtalk I tried this and it did then see the camera but dropped out when downloading a file.
    Any other worker ounces from there, please?

  6. I do have the same problem as PRGH and bigtalk. The program Camera Control Pro 2 stopped after 1 shot.

    I would be very grateful if someone could give me a hint/solution to solve that problem.
