All I can think of is - for capture type, you have to select Nikon DSLR plus EVF (electronic view finder, the live view.)  That's what I do with my Canon.  If you have already done that, I don't know...

Can you upload photos from your camera to the computer?  If so, the camera, cable and computer are working at least, so it's just SMP. 

I don't know anything about the D5100.

Try contacting the SMP guys, they may be able to help.  Sorry I'm not much use.
