I can connect USB, Bill Lynch can connect to his computer through USB & Ethernet, so he sent it back. The USB would quit functioning after a few hundred images. I've got 2 USB relays between the camera and the house. Neither my STL 1001 E nor my STF 8300 M have this problem. I'm using my STL 1001 E for now because it is rock solid and reliable, even after taking 400,000+ images. My question is this: What do I need to do to get my STXL 6303 E running on ethernet? I've clicked "Detect" in the Misc/Graphics/Comm Setup and I have the ethernet software in the CCDOps folder. The cable is plugged into the camera and the computer (Gateway laptop, Win 7).
