AS you have found out, the Maxxum AF mount and the MD mounts are much different. They do make tele-converters that allow the use of MD (non-AF) lenses on a Maxxum series camera. You would still need another adapter to make the MD Tamron converter work,

The good news is that it is possible to get the camera to operate with the lens & adapter :-)
The bad news is that you'll only be able to use it in manual mode :-(
To get the camera(s) to actually fire, you will need to change some settings.
For the Maxxum 7:
Go to Custom settings (No.16) and change to 'Lock Off'.
For Maxxum 7D
Go to the settings menu (purple cog icon) and then to sub-menu 3. Change Shutter lock to Off.
With the camera set to Manual mode, you can still use the built-in meter. Half-press the shutter button and you will see a metering scale appear in the viewfinder. This will indicate whether the shutter/aperture setting you've selected will over/under-expose the image. Adjust your settings until the indicator bar is over the zero.
Hope this helps,
PS. Even if you could somehow modify the adapter, the lens won't have the necessary electrical and mechanical coupling for the cameras to control it in an automatic mode.

SOURCE: Sony NEX-3 - I can't
Hi there, If you haven't already done so... Try connecting to a different USB port, or on a different computer. I noticed on my brothers computer, that when I use one USB port - doesn't work, but the other one does (probably something faulty inside on one of them). Also can try connecting using another different cord...
Hope you can get connected... ****.
