unable to retrieve photos from AS590 camera

Hi all,

I am using CHDK for about 2 years. Mostly for the Intervalometer feature.
By mistake I formatted the SD card in the camera.
Then I had to reinstall CHDK, I believe version 1.4.

Selected to automatically run the intervalometer script.
Everything went fine! It begins shooting after power on, and I even could hook the camera to USB port on my Windows machine and get the photos.

Yesterday I took it to shoot for an hour and there are lots of photos.
But when I am hooking it to an USB port it displays "communication error".
Also I cannot enter the CHDK menu.

Any idea what could be wrong?

Seems like a Cannon bug/limitation :(

Yes, this is a Canon issue that has been around for a very long time. You need to use a card reader if there are too many images on the card.

Unfortunately, this error disables all PTP communication, so you can't use the CHDK PTP extension to bypass it either.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
