Nikon Z9 Tethering - Current image import has failed

Hi All,


I'm trying to tether my Nikon Z9 into LRC on Windows 11 and I consistently get the following message. The shot is recognized, but then the transfer fails:


An internal error has occurred: A tether error has occurred. Current image import has failed. Please restart the tether session.


For a short period of time I was able to run tethered sessions into my machine with no issue. I don't remember exactly when it failed because it was during a large session in October, I switched cameras to a D500 that day. Since then however, no images will transfer from the Z9 to LRC. 


I've searched forums but not found any specifics on this issue and none of the options I've tried has worked. I am running the latest LRC and the latest firmware on the camera.


One thing I did see was that the Logitech Options software may interfere. I've uninstalled that software with no luck. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
