Referring back to my post from February 28th, 2020 , the SGP connect problem for my D800 has returned.
I can with release 188.8.131.529 of SGP not connect to my Nikon D800 DSLR using “Nikon” as the camera alternative in the “Equipment” section of my sequences. This was possible with an earlier release of SGP, after I had made the correction (removal of CF-card) that wes suggested as the answer to my Feb 28th post.
The D800 camera is physically connected via an USB3 cable to my laptop which is running Windows 10 Pro, Ver 1909. When clicking the connect icon in the sequence nothing happens for about 10s, then two error messages are displayed, suggesting me to remove the SD card in the camera, and then yet another message saying “Cannot connect to Nikon camera”.
I have tried with different USB ports of the computer and with settings both “Auto detect” and “D800” for the camera in SGP, with the same, negative, result. I have also ensured that there is absolutely no SD or CF card installed in the camera.
The camera is fully visible in Windows file manager when connected to the computer. I can also connect to and fully control the camera from e.g. digiCam Control, so I would say that the Windows settings and the general USB connectivity are OK, but something is not working in the interface towards SGP.
Any suggestions for a solution are greatly appreciated.
