Can anyone tell me how I get the 'true' firmware version from my SX10. The cam reports 1.0.1.0 via 'set' and 'disp'.  many thanks.

It has been reported that the SX10 doesn't report the version if both ver.req and vers.req are present: http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php/topic,3802.0.html so if you have both, delete one of them.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

The SX10 shows the advanced fw info page with ver.req, vers.req and also with both files, always.

@orkok:
The Canon firmware info ("1.0.1.0") is shown when there's no ver.req or vers.req file on the card's root folder,
so i guess you're running Windows & you've got the typical Windows issue...

Sure its vers.req and not vers.req.txt? Check in explorer in the menu "Tools" -> "Folder Options" -> "View" whether  "Hide extensions for known file types" is set.
