I had never had problems with my sd card an his two partitions (I had to make them because is a 8Gb card) in my computer (windows xp).
But I'm now in my brothers house an his computer (windows vista) doesn't see the second partition (the one with the pictures).
Anyone can give me some hints about how to make vista recognize that second partition?
Windows with it's original drivers never let you access any partition than the first.
- install a modified hard disc driver to let Windows work with partitioned removable media
(as you've got it on your XP computer)
- swap the partitions to switch between the first & the second partitions, either in the camera (model
dependent) or with a software tool (e.g. the SDM Installer)
- use a operating system that supports multi partitioned SD cards directly, e.g. all Linux distros do this
You should also be able to transfer your JPG images directly with a USB connection.
If you don't need the CHDK autoboot, you can use the full capacity of the card with a single
8GB FAT32 partition (use the firmware update loading method).
