You can always get an USB to COM adapter, they are like 10 bucks on Amazon.

Ok, i will try the COM way. The sound card dump is way too inconsistent. ADC.EXE giving Sync Error!

The AF addresses seems to remain unchanged: C0223030
The addresses I probed are
GREEN color of the LED: C0220130
RED color of the LED:C022034

RaduP,
Can you confirm the dump i got from a 1.01 Rev3.0 (1.01C) is the actual firmware?
I tried a few times, these two trials are quite identical but there are still some tiny differences. I don't know how critical these differences are.

The Phototransistor used is the Osram SFH300-3/4. Build based on the http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/File:Serial_Blinker_Receiver.png

Ok, I only tried the first one, which does indeed seem to be the actual firmware, but there is something slightly wrong with it. I think there are some leftover checksums.
Did you use the exact program I give you to upload in the camera and dump the firmware with? If not, try to use it unmodified.
And what did you use on the PC side to get it?

I removed the lines with 1234567890.. (the last one was the linefeed & carriage return). I did not clean the end of the file, since i could not figure out what to remove. Should I upload the raw (unmodified) dump?

The exact one did not work, since it was for platform id=31E6, but mine is 31E5. So i had to recompile it with 31E5.

In all cases, at the end, at 4 Mbytes, the load.exe timesout and stops, the camera does not turn off, and the AF led stays on forever (no blinking) so turn off the camera by removing the battery. Is it normal?

Well, the thing is, the program I made that cleans the dump need those 1234.. lines to be there. Otherwise it gets confused. So please give me the dump with those lines.
And by using the same program i meant the same source code, not the same binary.

Anyway, it is normal for the camera to do hang at the end.

Hi all,
I just bought the ixus 200 IS - SD980  and the firmware is 1.01C  ( Rev. 3 ) version
There is hope of operating the CHDK with this firmware?

Thanks
