ZWO ASI 294MC PRO

Post by tedcrampton » Thu Sep 13, 2018 9:07 pm

I have just installed parallels and Sharpcap pro on my imac pro.
Sharpcap sees two webcam type cameras BUT not does not see the ZWO ASI 294 MC PRO plugged into a separate usb 3 port .

The camera is seen by TheSkyX running on osx which can connect ok.

|I need to run parallels as I need to run TheSkyX to control the telescope and hopefully Sharpcap at the same time.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

lots of people have seen the same problem with Parallels - the cameras often show up but the USB virtualization doesn't seem to be up to the job of delivering image data. If there is a version of VMWare for the mac it may be worth testing (I can get a lot of camereas working under VMWare on windows). Basically the way to go is to use boot camp to have a completely separate raw windows install.

cheers,

Robin

i have been using parallels, sharpcap, and zwo 290 and 224 camera for a while. I occasionally have this issue, but can always get it to work.

-make sure parallels tool box is installed
-make sure windows drivers are installed
-when you plug in camera, a window should appear asking whether too hook it to Mac or Windows
-restart windows (right click on windows) icon and choose "actions". For whatever reason, this seems to always fix the issue.
