SX100IS stuck in Playback mode :(

I'm a bit of a newb to the CHDK world, so excuse me if this is a dumb question, but... I just got an SX100IS running 1.00C, onto which I promptly loaded the latest allbest build of CHDK (#51-442 built 20080712 21:33:48). After properly preparing my SD card (formatted, made bootable, extracted the CHDK ZIP, and locked), I inserted it and switched on the camera, only to find it will only allow me to use playback mode. If I attempt to switch to record mode, the camera powers itself off. What am I doing wrong? :[

You know what, I just figured it out. I hit the shutter a half-press and into record mode it went. Feel free to lock this thread, or keep it around for others to learn from my stupidity. :) :)

Since you figured it out, I don't see much "stupidity" in evidence...!! 8)

Have you tried a shoot half auto start script?

Well, here is test version - http://ewavr.nm.ru/chdk/for_test/allbest-sx100is-100c-51.zip , which allow turn SX100IS on in both record and playback modes (based on G7 sources).

Sorry ewavr, doesnt work.

In russian forum one man says that this works as expected ... Mystery....
How about latest CHDK autobuild, it works?

Yes, autobuild works.

I just tested your build on a freshly formatted SD card, just to make sure it has nothing to do with some files on my card, but still - doesnt work.

Well, I make new test version (the same link) - maybe camera can be turn on faster (no feedback yet in russian forum).

Yes, that works. But even with your new build i need to hold the buttons for at least a second.   ???
