I do not understand how to ensure my camera is in play mode rather than shoot mode
...1) You can dump your fw with Cardtricks (use "NewDryOS" method)* Use Cardtricks with an empty SD card (max. 2GB size !), select your card, press the NewDryOS button, read all the messages carefully & follow them.* Lock the card (important !), insert it & start up the camera - you'll see NO activity, just wait 30 seconds, then remove the batteries & the card.* Insert the card in your card reader, start Cardtricks again, select your card & press Strings.* Now you should see some strings from the firmware; close the window, click Clean in Cardtricks, then store the cleaned dump on your hard disk.* Zip this file and upload it somewhere, e.g. at a free file hoster like http://www.zshare.net, then post the link to this fw dump on this thread here in the forum: [DOWNLOAD LINKS] Firmware dumps available....
I have locked it as per instructions (which leaves me puzzled on how it can write the strings)
Thanks for the replies.They have made much more sense of the process.Regardless I am still getting no signs of the camera switching on when I insert the sd card (and no strings being recorded).
I wonder if this is due to the fact that I am using a microsd card (1gb) with an sd adapter.
If the camera fails to visibly power up, it must at least be attempting to load the program. Have you tried both dryos options ? (i'd expect it to be "new" dryos, but canon has done random stuff before)
