Is there a way to change the file prefix in the camera? Such as S90_001.jpg instead of IMG_001.jpg, so as to distinguish the S90's files from other Canon files. Thanks.

Been testing the latest 1.00c build you put on here, been working great so far.

I haven't be able to find anything yet, but when I unlock the disk (to use the camera without chdk), it says 'memory card full'. Is there a way around this, or do I need to different cards to swap between chdk and not?

Also, has anybody done the remote trigger voltage tests yet - if not, I can do it.

Thanks!

Few other things about the card: 8GB, partitioned into 2 partitions on a mac using the AppleScript automation.

I will assume you are using a smaller sd card >4gb and have set cardtricks to autoboot the chdk.  
What I might suggest (what I did on my 8gb) just install the chdk program.  No need to "lock" the card.  When you press play on the s90, camera will boot without chkd loaded, press the menu button, then up arrow on wheel, then update firmware and say yes.  This will NOT update the factory firmware, but it will install chkd UNTIL you power down the camera.  Now you can use chdk anyway you want, when you want, and if you don't want it loaded, just turn the camera off, then restart.  (works for me)

As far as the remote trigger, I do not know if anyone has done so yet...give it a try.

Thx for the great work ERR99.  I have been using the latest version of CHDK with no problems.  The only thing is that I read on the G11 forum that the jog dail was supposed to be useable in <ALT> mode when locked.  On the S90, once the jog dail is locked, I can't seem to move either the front or the back dail until I uncheck the lock feature.  Is there a way to quickly disable the lock and then relock?  Even a script would be fine, except run maybe through another button rather than the shutter.

See this thread for my remotes for the S90; the threshold seems to be about 3.7V for my particular camera, but probably varies a bit for everyone.

This sounds not normal, it should work as on the G11 (at least it does on my FW101a S90):
If jogdial lock is active, you cant use rear- or font jogdial anymore in shooting mode. But if you enter the alt-mode, you should be able to use the rear jogdial to navigate trough the CHDK menus. The front jogdial has anyway no function in ALT-Mode (regardless if jogdial lock is activated or not).

I think it works as you intended, however it was confusing to me as well at first. To simplify so that others can understand....
If "jogdial" is locked  (*) then both the front and rear dials do NOT function either in alt mode or standard mode.  This includes while in standard mode if you push menu, you can not use the rear wheel to navigate.  However, when in alt mode, then menu (displays chdk) you can still use the rear wheel to move around with. 

If logdial is UNlocked, but key locks is ON, then you can use the front and rear dials in Standard mode to hard set the iso, apt, etc...as soon as you go to alt mode, those setting are locked.  you can move the wheels, but nothing changes on the screen.  As soon as you move back to standard mode, the settings jump to where you had moved them while in alt mode.  So it seems you can force settings, then lock them using the alt mode, take the pics. 

So for me...I will just set the lock keys on...leave lock jogdial off, and work from there. 

Hope this helps...and PLEASE....ERR99, correct me if I am wrong.  :) 
All the "lock jogdial" does is just lock the front and back regardless if you are in alt mode or standard mode.

Ah yes, I thought you can operate the camera dials to control the camera under the <alt> mode.  I guess that's impossible.  Is there any way to assign a button to lock the jog dials?  It's nice to be able to lock the jog dial, but not very easy to get to the menu to lock and unlock.
