I'm trying to use my Nikon D5600 as a PC webcam, but when I connect the camera to the PC (Windows 10) with a Micro USB cable (to be clear, the same I usually use to transfer photos from the camera to the PC), and I try to open Windows Camera, this message appears:

We can't find your camera
[bla bla]
If you need it, here's the error code:
0xA00F4244<NoCamerasAreAttached>​

Does anyone know why does it happen?

There are two modes for the camera and the setting is made in the camera settings control panel. I think you need to change the way the computer recognizes the camera, but I could be mistaken. Perhaps you need a different cable connection, perhaps one that carries a video feed to the camera.

You are not trying to transfer photos... you want to send video images from the camera to the computer

Hi, thanks for the reply!
The problem is that I actually have just a Micro USB cable (no HDMI, ...), and I don't have time to buy another type of cable. :/
you need to change the way the computer recognizes the camera
Do you have any idea how to do it?

I cannot remember exactly how to do it. I still think that you would have better luck if you would use a video cable to connect it to your computer. You need to have the right connectors.
