I am wondering is it me or is it some stupid Canon's bug: I tried both Mac and Windows 10, and I am unable to select a network (or mapped drive on Win) for "Image Saving Location". Having NAS is not uncommon these days.
Anyone tried? Is there a workaround?
Solved! Go to Solution.
After the (pairing) connection is made to the computer and you press the computer icon in the utility, what happens if you select "Set Destination Folder"? and specify the path to your NAS?
Potential issues I see:
Entering an Incorrect path
Bay Area - CA
~R5 C (126.96.36.199) ~RF Trinity, ~RF 100~400, +Canon Control Ring~6D2 (v1.1.1) Retiring ~EF Trinity, others ~DxO PhotoLab Elite ~Windows10/11 Pro ~EVGA RTX 3080Ti FTW3 Ultra ~ImageClass MF644Cdw ~Pixel6 ~CarePaks Are Worth It
The error is always "Cannot write to the selected folder.
Select another folder.", no matter what NAS or other PC's mapped drive I choose, even if it is a mapped drive to the same box, and it is perfectly writable.
So, no it is not a permission issue or an incorrect path.
I'd love to hear from people that are actually doing it, and if they had to do it in any specific way.
and if you are on MacOS:
#read current: defaults read com.canon.ImageTransferUtility2 SaveRootFolder #write desired location: defaults write com.canon.ImageTransferUtility2 SaveRootFolder /Volumes/MyVolume/MyPath
