THE SOFTWARE ENGINEERS NEED TO GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD, TETHERING IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT FOR PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS FOR STUDIO AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS.  PLEASE TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK AT YOUR SOFTWARE TO FOCUS ON THE RELIABILITY AND SPEED OF TETHERING IN LIGHTROOM.  LOOK TO CAPTURE ONE FOR INSPIRATION AS THEY ARE DOMINATING LIGHTROOM IN MANY AREAS.

It's probably your OS Marcello, but you don't say what that is, so we can't help you.

If you are referring to tethering Fuji cameras, as Adobe employee Simon Chen observed in your other topic, LR itself doesn't support Fuji tethering.  If you're using the Fujifilm third party plugin, you'll need to contact Fujifilm for support.

I wasn't referring to Fuji tehthering but Canon actually but while on the topic why wouldn't Lightroom support Fuji tethering?

The explanation was provided in your other thread.

I suspect there CaptureOne will always be stronger in tethering. As you probably know, its owner's core business is medium format cameras and backs, and studio work is a big part of that small segment of the market. It simply has to be C1's strong suit - just as supporting every medium format camera is Adobe's. Shooting into a layout was a key reason I used to hear for sticking to C1 - eliminated when Lightroom implemented the image overlay - but I wonder if we'll ever see live view or something like CapturePilot. We're also seeing more app-based methods which allow the camera vendor to offer their own key features. So I just don't think it would make financial sense for Adobe to do a lot more on traditional tethering.

On the other hand, I think you need to look at the camera makers and their big incentive to provide the tethering capability themselves (as P1 do). What you may not know is that at the time of Lr6's release Adobe also extended the Lightroom SDK's tethering capabilities, and I think Fuji used this method. They could do more now, if they think it's worthwhile for them.
