But if you do
Code: [Select]
cd /Volumes/CANON_DC
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine DISKBOOT.BIN PS.FI2
You get file not found? That seems quite odd. You could try
Code: [Select]
xattr -c DISKBOOT.BIN PS.FI2
-c is supposed to clear all extended attributes

I get :
Mac-Pro-de-ADMINISTRATEUR-905:~ administrateur$
cd /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr -d com.apple.quarantine DISKBOOT.BIN PS.FI2
-bash: cd: /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr: No such file or directory
Mac-Pro-de-ADMINISTRATEUR-905:~ administrateur$
cd /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr -c DISKBOOT.BIN PS.FI2
-bash: cd: /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr: No such file or directory
Mac-Pro-de-ADMINISTRATEUR-905:~ administrateur$

Oddly the files are visible in the finder directory.
When I try in the camera, I cannot see a Firmware update in the menu. Instead I am offered a language menu with no other choice

cd /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr -d com.apple.quarantine DISKBOOT.BIN PS.FI2
-bash: cd: /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr: No such file or directory.

This looks like a problem pasting the commands. That's bash saying it could not cd to  /Volumes/CANON_DCxattr

You should paste each line separately. First, cd to /Volumes/CANON_DC
Code: [Select]
cd /Volumes/CANON_DC
Then run the xattr command
Code: [Select]
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine DISKBOOT.BIN PS.FI2
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Does ls -l@ still show com.apple.quarantine?

So it looks like the attribute is no longer present on DISBOOT.BIN and PS.FI2

You could try loading with firm update again. Start the camera with the play button, and "firm update" should be at the bottom of the menu. You usually have to scroll down in the menu to see it.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I do not have the firm update menu when I start the camera with the play button.

If I try starting the camera with the play menu and then Function /set AND menu button which was the process to load CHDK, I do not have the firm update menu either. I am afraid my camera is not working properly anymore.
Is there a way to go back to the factory settings and try the whole thing again ?
Thank you again for your patience

You should use just the menu button (not SET) to open the main camera menu, and then go to the very bottom of the menu.

No, it's virtually 100% certain this has nothing to do with your camera, only the preparation of the card.

You could start from scratch with the card, by formatting it FAT16, and then copying the files using one of the methods described on the wiki to avoid the extended attributes.

I realize I had forgotten to set the card in LOCK position!
This time I have access to the Firm Update menu.
When I press OK for changing from version 1.0.0.0. to 1.1.0.0. the CHDK screen appears for 1 second and disappears. And when I check for the version, it is back to 1.0.0.0.

After several trials a message in german appeared  ERROR : modules not available

I think I must start all over again as you suggested. Thank you very much for your  help

When trying to format the card with the terminal using safe mode to avoid the busy device message, I obtain this :
Mac-Pro-de-ADMINISTRATEUR-905:~ administrateur$
Mac-Pro-de-ADMINISTRATEUR-905:~ administrateur$ sudo newfs_msdos -F 16 -v Canon_DC -b 4096 -c 128 /dev/disk5

Mac-Pro-de-ADMINISTRATEUR-905:~ administrateur$

I obrain the same message using /dev/disk5s1

What did I do wrong ?

This is normal. After you do this, CHDK is running until you turn the camera off.

This means the folder CHDK/MODULES is missing on the card, or for some reason the camera isn't seeing the files there. You need all the files from the zip, in the same folder structure on the card.

Note you should *unmount* but not *eject* the drive. This is described on the FAQ, although again, it's old, so it's possible things are slightly different on your Mac.

I don't know off hand, I use Macs very infrequently, but what I would do in this situation is google...

From this http://astroweasel.blogspot.com/2014/06/formatting-sd-card-as-fat16-under-mac.html and https://forums.adafruit.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=7108%23p34846 it seems the warning can be normal, and does not mean the command didn't work.  But now that you've tried different things, you might need to format the card again using the normal Mac UI or the camera to get back to a normal state before starting over.
