Canon R5 Tether re-connect indexing/busy not connecting

    Do you have any other software that might be grabbing the camera when it is re-attached? Even cloud sync tools like Google Drive, OneDrive, etc, can get in the way.

    This may be nothing to do with your problem but, in your description, you sort of indicate that you want to back up to an in-camera card but then say you had problems when the card was already full.

    Surely this would not be viable as a useful backup? So it would not be entirely unreasonable for the system to identify a potential problem?


    Does that make the problem a matter of how C1 communicates its concerns to you or something to do with how it manages backups in-camera storage facilities? (Assuming that it is not connected to Walter Rowe's observation above.)

    Walter Rowe - I don't believe so. Also the tethering works perfect until this issue occurs 


    SFA - To clarify, not when the card is full, just when a portion of images already exist on the card. It's nowhere near full when these incidents happen.

    I am having issues with my R5 connecting with C1 when my camera turns off then turning back on. sometimes it can take 5-10 mins to reconnect unplugging and turning off my camera.
