...I forgot to select true letter G for the card, and sellected C drive Die !!
That's VERY bad...but i'm sure, you know that NOW  ;)

The bootable.exe for CHDK writes into the first 512 bytes of the medium, this area is called "boot sector", Master Boot Record MBR on x86 architecture. I think the winbootabel.exe should do the same, only from a Windows GUI - if you mean the tool from the russian forum (i never used it by myself).
You could only access your drive c: when the MBR contains a vaild partition table.

If you don't have a backup of your harddiscs boot sector (i don't think you have that), you can try to write a new MBR to your disc, but first stop and read this:

If the files on your drive are really important you can give it to a data recovery company,
they could normally recover most or all of your files, but you'll pay money for it !  Wikipedia: Data Recovery


...if you want to try it by yourself, don't forget:

All actions can destroy all your data, after that a data recovery specialist can't help you anymore !!!

So - if you're REALLY sure that you want to try to repair it by yourself:
- boot your system from a MS Windows XP installation CD
- select "r" ("Recovery console")
- select your drive, your Windows installation & insert your administrator password
- on the recovery console you can get a list of all commands with   help
- you can use  diskpart  to have a look to the partition table (but do not try to change something there !)

On the prompt of the recovery console call each of the following commands, read & confirm the messages...

fixmbr c:
fixboot c:


Then type exitand your system will shutdown...with some luck it starts up again, otherwise you can try other ways to recover your data, e.g. with a Linux Live CD or a recovery software...

You can also use a Windows PE system (a Windows system running from CD), e.g. made with BartPE

Good luck !

*EDIT: a free & powerful data & partition recovery tool is TestDisk, could also be helpful...

Hi

I am struggling to try to figure out how to do time lapse photography with a Canon A620 for a demolition and construction project my company is doing (starting Tuesday!)  I am seeing all of this stuff with Canon Hacker software, but this stuff seems way out of my league.  Can any one send me to a step by step instructs or a simple script to do this?  NO experience on my end!

Hi Everyone,
I found the CHDK site awhile ago but was a bit scared of downloading it.  Finally after much searching for information about it I decided to forge ahead.  I am so glad I did as it works great on my sx10is.  Now I just have to learn how to use it.
Thanks for this forum as I am sure I will be using often.

CHDK is not available for DV camcorders, so there's nothing to install...

THX!
Continuous shooting means shoot pictures for as long as you hold the button down. If this is what you mean, then it is supported in the camera firmware without need for CHDK. Consult your camera manual.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
