Up until last night my WT-2A wireless transmitter worked flawlessly. The only changes I did was to update the firmware to 2.0 and installed Nikon Camera Control Pro. Now the camera won't transmit the photo to my laptop (Mac). No settings in the camera or laptop were changed. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Did the firmware update have anything to do with this problem? Or is the software causing this?
Go into the set-up menu and change the USB setting from Mass Storage to PTP.
Either you changed this yourself in order to load the update of the firmware or the update reset that setting to factory default. Either way just flick it back to PTP and the D2X will be able to find the WT-2 again.
Aside from the advice given you by Noel-you should check all your camera settings as most, myself included, notice that most settings returned to default after the firmware 2.0 update. With luck you made note of your previous settings prior to completing the update. I had my previous settings noted on a template that Nikionian "Hansvg" had provided sometime ago. He was also kind enough to update that template after the firmware update came out.
Unfortunately it's the old "shutting the barn door after the horse gets out" chiche'. I didn't make note of my settings prior to the firmware update.
I did go to the set up menu to reset from mass storage to PTP like Noel said, but it was already in the PTP mode. Also I was only able to change the USB setting once, everytime I try to go to it it's "grayed out" and won't let me access it.
Is the WT-2A attached when it's greyed out? It could be that the unit locks that setting when the D2X recognises it's there. Try it with the USB cable disconnected. If that doesn't release the USB setting and prevent it going grey then there is something a bit more major going on.
As to the setting already being at PTP? Hmmm....
Does the camera allow you to get to all of the settings for the WT-2A when it's mounted?
Oh hang on... you installed camera control pro that means you are likely working in PTP/IP mode instead of FTP mode. Am I correct?
Have you checked that you are using the latest version of the wireless control software? Check that then try re-pairing the camera (by re-pairing I mean run the wireless connection software to check that you have the laptop and camera paired up). The new firmware may have broken the pairing. The laptop may think the updated camera is a different one and so won't let it have access until you complete the pairing exersize with the new set-up.
