Is is possible to display the number of exposures on a Powershot? I don't trust the image file number count.

Yes, camera dependent.
Use the vers.req method --> http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Ver.req#Q._How_can_I_get_the_original_firmware_version_number_of_my_camera.3F

I don't really understand.

I put the ver.req file on my memory card (it already was there). Started my cam in playback mode and pressed the func + disp buttons. The version was displayed as:
Code: [Select]
Canon PowerShot A540
P-ID:311B PAL

Firmware Ver GM1.00B
E18

I also tried the CameraVersion tool and it displays a lot of interesting info. But not the total number of exposures.

Can you explain further what you meant?
Thanks in advance.

vers.req - not ver.req !
See also the samples at the CHDK wikia on the A540 page - http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/A540#Firmware_info :

  * The vers.req file works, too.
  * Pressing SET and DISP button a third time results in:

Canon PowerShot A540
P-ID:311B  PAL

Adj Ver.002.002
Total Shoot  :xxxx
Open Shutter :0
Close Shutter:0
