Problems overriding shutter speed on SX40

For some reason, the shutter speed override refuses to cooperate with me.

Disable Overrides = [Disable]
 Include AutoIso & Bracketing = []
Override Shutter Speed Value = [3]
 Value Factor = [10]
ShutterSpeed Enum Type = [Factor]

As I understand it, this should result in a 30-second shutter time. What gives? This functionality worked perfectly on my a590IS.

Thanks in advance!

Try this  ;)

Disable Overrides = [No]
 Include AutoIso & Bracketing = [.]
Override Shutter Speed Value = [3]
 Value Factor = [10]
ShutterSpeed Enum Type = [Factor]

No luck. Shutter was still 1 second, and the display said "NO OVERRIDES".

I also tried setting disable overrides to all three settings, no luck with any. On, Off, and Disable.

Delete the file CCHDK2.CFG from the CHDK folder on the card and then try again, or try the 1.2.0 version.

It's a PowerShot SX40HS
Firmware Ver. GM100G(1.0.0.0)
AdjVer .010.008

Build: Sept 9 2011 8:50:44

Tried both CHDK v 1.1 and 1.2, making sure each time to get the correct build for my firmware.

I tried overriding other things like aperture with no success.

All overrides work correctly on my sx40 which is also 1.00g.

A build from Sep 2011 is very old - try downloading the latest 1.2 build onto a clean SD card.
