I need help, I have placed the ver.reg file in the SD card but the only version info that comes up is Firmware ver. 1.0.1.0. Tried every thing but cannot get the firmware version number. The card is Fat 16 not 32. ???

just a (quite common) reading error - it's ver.req (last letter is Q not G) as in version required or request

have fun with CHDK,

Thanks, dumb huh.

OK so I did everything else and tried 1.0a (camera would not start) then 1.0b and the it appears to work. The splash screen comes up and the alt mode works but there is no Update Firmware on the menu. I presume that as its all working it's not needed?

OK now I'm really showing how dumb I am.

Please tell me I'm right when I say that alt mode is for setting up the parameters and running scripts and once carried out you go back to normal to take the photos?

I downloaded the CHDK Userguide in Progress and I guess it needs a really basic explanation of what it does, or is it in the wikia and I missed it?

Yes I think you've got it now.

If you've got suggestions how to improve the user guide I'm sure the author (Graystar)
would be happy to hear them.
