Raw but no JPG wanted

Am currently using AllBest #51 on a Canon SD800IS.  Thanks to CHDK I'm using RAW exclusively -- anyone know if it's possible to avoid the generation of .jpg versions of each image in camera along with the raw (.crw) file?  Thanks.

I dunno of a way to do what you're asking, but if you're worried about space, you could set jpegs to the lowest size/quality setting. Think of them more as thumbnails

Mind you,the raw pics contain no exif data, no good for archiving.

Thanks to everyone for replies.  I am aware of the lack of exif -- am curious what you mean by "no good for archiving."  Is the common wisdom to keep both a raw and (an original) .jpg pair in order to save the exif data?

Well if you keep just the raws, 2 years later you will have no information whatsoever about aperture, iso etc. if you however convert them to DNG (with the help of the jpgs) the information will be kept inside the dng.

In my case, I always keep the original JPG. But this is because I often lack the time to PP hundreds of DNG pictures. You know, PP the good shots and stick with the JPG of the "so so" shots.

You can follow A_Str8 sugestion and once in the PC, copy EXIF data from JPG to DNG.

But IMHO the decision of "keeping" is less regretable than "erasing".
