Help please--I have seen all the new goodies that CHDK does inside my Canon A 710 IS--but I CAN'T seem to make anything permanent beyond a restart of the camera!!
I follow the instructions ( more or less, as they are a bit different on my Canon) I power down the camera and remove the 4GB SDHC card and slide the lock botton to lock it. On re-starting the camera I have two probs;-
1) The display says "locked card" ( I can live with that if it still records my pics/ video)
2) All the CHDK new displays have disappeared and the only way to get them back is to go right through the "install on camera" routine again.
In any case, if I power down and re start the Canon the CHDK stuff is NOT retained.
The difference between the instructions and my display is that the instructions tell me;-
" - If you would like to have CHDK auto-load every time you power on your camera, then go into CHDK's menu system. (Press "Shortcut" to enter <ALT> mode, then your "Menu" button to enter CHDK's menus.) Scroll to the bottom of the main CHDK menu to the "Debug Parameters" option.
- Enter the "Debug" menu and scroll to "Make Card Bootable...". Press your "Set" button. "
On my Canon display the "Debug Prameters" option comes under " Other stuff"
What I am also noticing is that when I ( carefully) press the "Select" button to confirm the " Make card bootable", there does not seem to be any reaction in the menu at all--i.e. no ticks, no crosses, no "OK", - just a jump of the line down the right hand side of the menu display.
Is there something that I am too stupid to follow? Am I "Mentally Challenged?" Please help set me straight. Thanks in advance.
