We could swap SD cards.
I'll send a 2GB SanDisk C2 (ordinary) card with the version of SDM that David wants on it.
I can sandwich in between cardboard & send International Air Mail.
We can both keep the cards.
Cheers

Col,

Sounds good to me.

Email me your shipping address and I'll email you mine.

Col and David,

Outside of swapping SD cards and testing, unless David has some master plan, I believe that this would probably be the end of the testing.

If Col sends me the SD card with the file on-board that is crashing his S5IS and it runs fine on my S5IS, and I send him the latest SDM file that runs without problems on my S5IS, and that causes his camera to crash I'd say Col should put his camera on the hand rail of a slow boat to China and hope for choppy waters. Let it swim with the fishes. (or just run CHDK?)

Sorry for the delay Col.

I just shipped your SD card out today.

I have finished this weekend two protoypes of my remote control. It works as advertised. I'll start a new thread tonight with photos and a movie showing how well it works. You'll love it. I'm probably still about 45 to 60 days away from a production unit but it will be worth the wait.

Watch for a new thread tonight featuring the remote. Still a bit more testing on different Canon P&S cams to assure proper operation on many cameras. I'll also need to test with different vendors of wireless remotes as well.

Col and David,

I received Col's SD card today. I tested it and discovered the following:

1. The card contained all the files from some version of CHDK, except the diskboot.bin.

2. The card contained the minimalist SDM file diskboot.bin David created for me.

3. Testing revealed that the program worked correctly with no crashing except the program would constantly start in test.

4. I did the check sum routine and both his diskboot.bin and mine had the same checksum.

5. I copied off all files from Col's card and re-formatted his SD card. I reinstalled all the files, and the program continued to always default to test.

6. I replaced his bootdisk.bin with mine, same thing, always defaulted to test.

7. I replaced his MD_SDM script file, same thing, defaulted to test.

8. I examined all the parameter files did not see a difference, but then I replaced his parameters files with mine, and fixed the problem.

I'm not sure why, but something in his parameters files were different.

Gregg

Thanks very much for checking this for me Gregg.
I hope this restores my sanity & my cameras ability ?
So somewhere in cyber space it got corrupted, oh well blame it on Murphy ?
Cheers

I thought we were checking why SDM 1.83 crashed Col's camera ?

3. .....  the program would constantly start in test.

It would do unless you disabled Autostart in the Script menu.

Hmmm ... maybe corrupted ?
