S5, Bracketing, and Raw

Couple quick questions.....Just bought a brand new S5 and installed CHDK.
I am trying to take bracketed photos in Raw mode. When I set it to Raw in CHDK menu, it still saves as jpg.
I must be missing something. Also I cannot seem to get it to take more than 3 bracketed shots at a time.

Thanks in advance to someone who can point me in the right direction, and or scripts if that is what I need. :)

Enabling RAW does not disable JPEG. Both are saved. You may have chosen a RAW filename that is not visible via USB. Did you search the entire DCIM folder using a card reader?

Continuous mode bracketing (see extra photo operations and set camera in continuous mode) is the probably the fastest way to bracket.

When I set that in CHDK, What mode with the camera menu/options do I shoot in? Auto?

auto/p/m/tv/av are all fine. But you need to select Canon's continuous (burst) mode instead of single shooting. Or one of Canon's timer shooting modes (they are a bit slower but you don't need to touch the camera like you do in burst mode unless you use a script or a remote trigger). Or a CHDK script.

Thanks for all your help.
Got it working, just problem is I cannot get it to shoot more than 3 photos. Was hoping for at least 5.
Messing with HDR software :)

There is no limit to the amount of bracketed shots you can take in continuous mode.
