Cable release won't work

\015 I have a nikon mc30 cable release that is not working on my d300. i tried it on my husbands d300 and it works fine so i know the problem is with the camera. what do i need to do? thanks\015

Answers :

I use a cable release on my D300 quite often and in all modes (timed, multiple or single exposures). I am not aware of any special programming or set up requirements. If the release works on one camera and not the other, then you are correct in your diagnosis.

Hi. I use my Nikon D2x and 80-200 f2.8 zoom extensively, generally with a Hama cable release. Recently, the set-up stopped working. The camera focuses, but the release will not trip the shutter. The only clue (with a freshly formatted 16Gb CF card in use) is r17 in the viewfinder, although the manual fails to mention what this means. The cable release works perfectly on my D700 with the same lens. Anyone any ideas? Paul Perton Cape Town

Can't see the camera from the computer. Everything works fine on the camera, but the USB connection doesn't work. It's like the usb driver chip failed.Put it on a linux machine, and can't see it from there either. I have reloaded the drivers several times. And it used to work on this computer.
