    Tethered Capture not working with LR and D5300, still

    kevinc71 Level 1

      When attempting a tethered capture session with Lightroom 2015.6 (latest version) and my Nikon D5300, Lightroom says that the camera is not detected.  I tried a trial of Nikon Capture Pro 2 and it works, no problem.  I tried a trial of PhaseOne's Capture One Pro 9, and it works.  I downloaded digiCam Control and it works! 


      I have been in touch with tech support at Adobe twice, both times they took remote control of my computer and spent literally hours trying to make it work, both failed.  I have been trying to get this to work every since I purchased Lightroom, three months ago.  Adobe needs to find a fix for this.  It's obviously something wrong with their software.  And this is a well known problem, dating back several versions of Lightroom.


      I've already gone through all the so-called solutions listed on Fix tethered shooting in Lightroom .  They don't work.


      My specs are as such:

      Windows 10 Home 64-bit (completely updated)

      Intel Core i5 2.5GHz

      8GB RAM

      113GB of free space on hard disk


      Nikon D5300 DSLR

      C 1.01

      L 2.009

      tried with 16GB and 128GB SD cards as well as with NO card

      connected to computer with included, short, USB cable in various USB3 ports
