Hello All, Please be gentle with me :)

I've read the wiki and searched the forum, I have a Cannon A810 with a 16gb card.

I've tried Eoscard, Sticky (and wasp) and Yesterday I tried formatting the card just with a single fat16 200mb partition with CHDK on and nothing else and no matter what I try I can not get it to auto boot.

The firmware update method works every time but I really wanted to auto boot either with a single partition or with dual partitions.

Has anybody else seen this before with the A810?

Many thanks
Maybe this is covered, but you did not mention if you set the SD card  lock switch to the "locked" position prior to attempting to autoboot?

If you do that and don't get either a CHDK boot or a "Card Locked" message then perhaps the card socket switch in your camera is defective?

The A810 is a post-2011 camera and will boot from a single FAT32 partition on a 16gb card. It will NOT boot from a dual partition card where the small partition is FAT16.

If you use STICK to prepare the card it will tell you if the card is formatted properly and bootable.
