Connect 5D4 to windows10 by USB

Hi All,

I'm trying to connect my 5D4 to my Laptop essentially so it can be used as a temporary webcam.

The first time i connected it to a USB3 an event appears in the action window to ask "what to do with...", but then it disappears. The camera isn't connected. I've tried different USB ports (USB2, only 1 USB3) and subsequently no message.

Device Manager briefly refreshed as i plug the connector in, but no camera device appears.

EOS utiility doesn't want to connect as there's no camera connected.

Just updated the camera firmware to 1.3.3, and EOS utility is 3.13.30.6, FWIW.

This is an Intel Laptop and there is plenty advice for AMD owners so i'm a bit stumped.

Any suggestions?

Mal
