Ixus 75 Firmware Version

Complete newbie here. please be patient with me!

I have an Ixus 75.... after two hours! I managed to get it to tell me "Firmware Ver. 1010"
So all excited I go back to CHDK only to be told:

"To find your camera's firmware version number, follow the directions in the FAQ. (Please note: your camera's firmware version is NOT 1.0.0.0 or 1.0.1.0!    It's a number that looks similar to this example: 1.01e. See the FAQ to find the actual version number.) - update: in the autobuilds usually there is the mentioned vers.req file you need for finding out your firmware version"

How do I get my camera's Frimware version No? (If possible can people give answers in english sentences rather than three letter accronyms and file names that mean nothing to me.)

Cheers,

Dave.

Hi Dave,

It seems to me that this is in plain English

THanks
