The Mamiya ZD driver will not install in Windows 7 since it wasn't written for 64bit systems. However, since I know a handfull of people are still using the Mamiya ZD system, I just wanted to share that I have tweaked the driver file and it will now work with 64bit Windows systems. So if you have a ZD and have been longing to tether to your 64bit Windows box, look no further.

So here's what to do... You can either download and unzip the attachment from this post or open notepad and create a file called "MOPCAMZD.INF" and copy this into it:

Once you have that file saved just go into device manager, locate the ZD driver from the tree, right click and select "Update Driver Software..." Now select the "Browse my Computer" option, click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers" and select "Have Disk..." It will pop open a new window and you browse to the folder where you put the MOPCAMZD.INF file and select it. It will probably tell you something about the driver not being digitally signed, just say you want to install it anyway. That's it! Now you can install Mamiya Remote Capture Beta and start shooting tethered.

I couldn't get the Mamiya Digital PhotoStudio software to install in Win 7 but, Mamiya Remote Capture Beta installed just fine and I can successfully tether. Also, this method should work for 64bit Vista and XP too.

Enjoy!
