Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

Windows won't recognize D50 in PTP mode

\015 I'm trying to get connect my Nikon D50 to my laptop in PTP mode so that I can shoot tethered using the free script found here: http://www.diyphotobits.com/2008/11/28/diyphotobitscom-camera-control-21-greens/Unfortunately, I currently cannot get Windows to recognize my camera. Here's what happens: First, I set the USB mode on my Nikon D50 to PTP (as opposed to Mass Storage) and connect it to my laptop via USB. Then I get the messages ''Found New Hardware'' and ''NIKON DSC D50'' and the Found New Hardware Wizard comes up. It doesn't find the hardware on its own. Instead it tells me ''the data is invalid''. I have tried downloading the drivers from Nikon's website here: http://support.nikontech.com/cgi-bin/nikonusa.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4611#folder_structure. When I run the PTPSetup_ENG says that the ''installation is complete'', but it still won't recognize the camera.I've also tried this method of pointing directly to the drivers: http://support.nikontech.com/cgi-bin/nikonusa.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=493. When I do this I get the message: ''the specified location does not contain information about your hardware''. Grrr. I must have spent 10-15 hours scouring the internet for information about this with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.I'm running Windows XP with Service Pack 3.Daniel L\015
