Trouble starting CHDK

I have downloaded CHDK for canon sx20is (GM102D) and extracted it to SD card.  With the card in the camera, I am unable to find the menu item to update firmware, thus I cannot start CHDK.  I have tried the recommended two depressions of the Playback button but nothing happens.  Any suggestions?

Hello & welcome, DaveT !

The SX20 CHDK DOES NOT support the manual loading method through the firmware update mechanism.
--> start CHDK from a CHDK-bootable SD card, e.g. prepared with CardTricks
