Re: Connect USB without blocking the display

Hi Arnie

As soon as I connect a USB cable to the camera with a PC in the other end the screen is blocked and I cannot view images or mark them for transfer, the normal menu is working.

The WT-7 also connects to the USB port but from the manual I have found that you can still work on the camera screen to select images so they do something to prevent the camera from locking the screen.

My idea is to connect the Raspberry Pi to the USB port and then being able to either use a wired network connection from the Pi or a "real" wi-fi compared to the weak camera built in wi-fi. This would extend the distance and increase the transfer speed.

If anyone knows how to make the camera not lock the screen when using a USB cable I would be more than happy get to know how

Thanks
Peter
