i have a powershot sx1 is, and it only works on 4GB card (only setting that ever worked for me), and i would like to do some time lapse like a whole day's work of it, but 4GB is not enough, and the power is not enough.

i have a wire(usb-a to usb -b) that connects to my computer, so is there a extension that lets me to tranferre the pictures taken on the SD card into a folder in windows, so it never gets full?

oh, and the power is also a problem... (http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/cameras/Digital_Compact/Powershot_SX_series/PowerShot_SX1_IS.aspx?type=faq&faqdetailid=tcm:13-607675)

You should be able to use a larger, partitioned card. Use STICK to install.
Since you're on Windows, you may need to use WASP to be able to access the large partition on the card (when using a card reader).

You can buy an external power supply for the camera - either the original Canon or a compatible one.

Transferring files (and do other stuff) over USB is possible, see: http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/PTP_Extension
