Re: G7X Mark II - No WiFi Software for Mac OS 10.11 and No USB Image Transfer to Mac Photos

"Right now I am most concerned that I can charge my camera with a USB cable but the same cable will not work to transfer images to my Mac using Photos."

 

Where did the cable come from?  Some cheap cables have only the power conductors, and make no data connections, at all!

I saw that suggestion in another post someplace, but I cannot find anything about turning off or disabling wifi in the G7X Mark II's User Guide, or at the Canon website.  Do you know how to turn it off?

Victory!

 

I was coming back to my computer to try another USB cable I found around my house when I saw Conway, NH's last post and responded to it.

 

Then I tried the other cable and it works!  Apparently the other cable I was using was OK for charging but not for data transmission.  The second cable I just found seems to work for charging and for data transmission!  

 

Neither one is a Canon product.  I have two Canon USB cables that came with previous Canon cameras, but they both have USB 2.0 Mini-B 5 Pin connectors.  The G7X Mark II, unlike the G7X, requires a USB 2.0 Micro-B 5 Pin connector.
