Thanks for taking the time to help!
Ok, I put that script on my camera and here are the results:
First of all, I noticed that in all modes I get a red message in the top left corner of the camera screen that says "uBASIC:9 Parse err". I don't think I've ever noticed that before. Did I do something wrong in copying the script?
When in taking pictures mode it produces readable results that stay still:
"No video button.
When in viewing pictures mode:
The text in the bottom left goes by too fast to really read, but i think it says no video button and then something like mode.
When in video mode:
Text also goes by too fast to read. I think it says no video button and then I think I can catch the words play and mode, but I'm not sure.
"MDFB script ERROR:"
"Not in REC mode, exiting."
if you are in play mode or if the get_mode command on your camera doesn't work correctly.
I think this matches the error I've been getting from the motion detector script when in video mode. Its difficult to read but I think I have noticed the word exiting. Does that mean that it thinks I'm in play mode when I'm in video mode? Is there some setting that I should change to make it realize its in video mode? I've looked for something like that but couldn't find anything...
