Thanks reyalp.  In my searching I missed that thread.

I have been trying to figure out how the camera is able to recognize the eye-fi card. Does anyone have a clue?
The card can be formatted (so no special file is read),
I believe it is done with special files, see this thread http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6753.msg84657#msg84657

Since the eyefi is aware of the SD card filesystem, formatting shouldn't matter, it could create them or notice their creation.

Quote
but eye-fi cautions against formatting in a SD to CF adapter, saying that it can cause the card to fail. 
No idea about this.

FWIW, I'd still be interested in getting the eyefi interface code into CHDK, but it really needs a developer who has eye-fi cards to drive it.

Also, we'd have to figure out how it interacts with Canon's native eye-fi support, I don't think these existed when the code in that thread was originally developed.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hi,
Not sure my skills are up to the task, but I am willing to give it a try.
