Hi All. I just found out about the CHDK today and thought it sounded excellent.

Then I noticed my Powershot S70 is currently unsupported (or at least as far as I can tell).

What do I need to do to get it working?

Could anybody point me in the right direction - thanks

it seems the s70 only sports a digic I chip, whereas for chdk to work you need at least digic II. sorry for the bad news.
background: the digic I cameras have a whole different operating system than the II & IIIs, chdk isnt compatible with that.

Thanks for getting back so quickly.

Damn - stupid old camera. Time to buy a new one  :D

FYI I ran the ver.req thingy and got:

Canon PowerShot S70
Firmware Version 1.00D
Error 38F4
