Ok, I figured it out I had to start the camera up not with the power button but with the playback button, then update the firmware. As soon as I updated the firmware I saw the splash screen pop up.All is good.I spoke to soon, all is not good.So I then turned on my camera using the power button and did not get the splash screen. Thought this was strange and so I started it back up again using the play back button. I went to the firmware update and noticed that it didn't update it, it still shows 188.8.131.52 -> 184.108.40.206. It seems to either not load or somehow reset.
Please read and understand this wiki page :http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_cardYou are missing some fundamental understanding that you will need before going any farther.For example, you need to understand the difference between the "firmware update" method of loading CHDK and the "SD Card Lock" method of auto-booting.You also need to understand that CHDK does not update the firmware on your camera or make any other permanent changes. It's all covered on that wiki page.
I finally figured it out from a youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYOaspc4Ohw
What I was missing was after starting the camera via the play button and not the power button I was suppose to tap the shutter button and then to enter the CHDK menu tap the play button again.
With my reading not once did I see any mention of entering via the play button and then tapping the shutter button.
