CHDK loaded, cannot get to chdk folder on SD card via usb

I have loaded chdk and all looks well.  I can see the files on chdk file explorer, but when I connect via usb I get an error when I try to create a new folder in the root.  (The new folder could not be created in this location.  The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected"

windows 7

Thanks in advance.

Hello & welcome, tyguy123 !

Access to the SD card's filesystem through USB is limited by Canon, the transfer protocol used for this (PTP, Picture Transfer Protocol) is limited to a few file types & operations.
The behaviour differs between the camera models, but mostly operations like creating / moving folders are not supported...use a card reader instead.
