    I'm not sure what you mean by "classic" or "pro". Do you mean ST versus STF?

    Your camera was manufactured in July 2011. It is an ST-8300M. The first STF units were built in December of that year.

    Hi Doug
    I need to update my driver, a recent Windows 10 update has caused a driver error: Receive time out error code 1008(Ox3fO).
    The options in the 64 checker ask Classic or pro?

    Oh now I see. This is buried under Config Drv / Select ST Model. The selector is used to indicate whether the camera has a remote guide head connector on it or not.

    This isn't relevant to the ST-8300 camera. It's for the long-obsolete ST-7 series (including ST-8, ST-9, ST-10, ST-2000, ST-4000). There is no guide head option on the ST-8300. It doesn't matter what that is set to.

    Yes the cameras are named confusingly. The ST-402 and derivative cameras are NOT the same as the ST-7 series cameras. I don't know why they did that!

    Doesn't matter what you select. It has no effect whatsoever on your model of camera.
