The D300 is a much more capable camera than the D3100. The D7000 is listed as compatible with Camera Control Pro 2. The D7000 manual lists the D7000 as capable of using Camera Control Pro 2.
I have no problem with a D70 and D200 using my laptop with Nikon Capture even though neither's manual list Camera Control Pro 2. But the Camera Control Pro 2 list the cameras as usable. I can also trigger both cameras with an Epson P-7000 and download the images.
I find the downloadable manuals are not always updated, but other content is reasonably up to date.
You might want to look for a 3rd party product. But only Camera Control 2 allows for the loading of Picture Controls and saving the camera's settings. Since there is an electrical connection and control data is being sent to the camera, the camera needs to have the correct interface and software to support this feature.
