Nikon D90 Camera Not Detected

Feb 1, 2012 11:56 AM

Tags: #lightroom #photoshop #lightroom3 #problems #nikon #tethering #d90

I am trying to tether the camera to Lightroom3 to no avail. I am operating under windows 64 bit edition and using the Nikon D90 with a usb cord. The lightroom version I am using is 3.6. I have downloaded other programs and shot tethering fine but they dont have the features Lightroom has to offer so they fall short. Windows also detects the camera itself but lightroom does not. The Nikon plugin is also on. Anyone mind lending a hand?

    Try to restart LR after connecting the camera.

    And is your camera recognized as camera or as mass storage device ?

     

     

    Anyway my D90 connects fine over here with LR3.6 and LR4beta.

     

     

    Windows 7 64 bit.

    I just tried my connection again.

    When in LR after starting tethering you have the "no camera connected" on your screen, and connect the camera ,then it takes about 25 sec to get the connection in LR after the windows sound of connection.

    Here's the supported cameras document from Adobe

     

    http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/842/cpsid_84221.html

     

     

    It says Windows XP supported and Windows 7 may be for the D90.

     

    So it should work under Windows XP.

     

    And it should work even if you are using the trial version.

     

    Lightroom is a fantastic program and worth every penny you spend on it.

    XP 64bit has never been supported by Lightroom since the inception, 32bit only.

     

    Some folks ran it on 64bit, but Adobe did not support it.

    I am having the same issues. I have tried both Light Room 3 and 4 Beta (on Win 7 64 bit) with the D90. Only once did it connect with 4 Beta. Otherwise no luck no matter what I do (tried Frans advice as well). What I can't find out is whether version 4 is intended to support the D90 - Adobe just referred me to the forums! Does anyone have any suggestions? BTW I have added a question on this forum as well before I found this discussion.

    Try connecting/tethering the D90 to Lightroom without the SD-Card in the slot.

    The D90 is not "officially" supported for tethered shooting in Lightroom. That tells me that it's kind of a "luck of the draw" as to whether or not it will work. I have a D90, but I haven't even bothered to try tethered shooting. I don't really need it. I've thought about trying it a time or two, but just haven't got around to doing it.
