    May I try it?

    Later.

    First, you may like to see if PTP works on IXUS105 100c  :- http://www.zshare.net/download/9322818670309a22/

    Find out how to install and test libusb and then turn on camera and switch to Playback mode.
    If you do not hear the PTP 'On connect' event, enter ALT mode and press SET until you hear a beep and 'UL' (Upload) is displayed at bottom of screen.

    In a DOS command window on your PC, type ptpcam --sdm.

    Try the following :-

    <conn> version
    <conn> led 1
    <conn> led 0
    <conn> record

    <conn> run beep
    <conn> run beep 10

    runs the beep background task and beeps every ten seconds.
    It keeps running even if you close ptpcam and exit ALT mode on the camera.

    So :-

    <conn> run beep_off
    <conn> play
    <conn> q



    I'm on 100.d
    As far as I know, PTP only lets you transfer files from the cam to the pc...and it already does that. What new functionality would be added here?

    Give me the 100d version and I'll try it out.

    http://www.zshare.net/download/93245009389068b9/

    Tried installing libusb, there is no such command as ptpcam.

    You need to provide me the exact link to this libusb and ptpcam.

    Also as I asked specifically, tell me what new functionality will this add cause as far as I know, I'm already able to transfer photos from the cam to pc with sdm.

    We can do all sorts of things.
    But before I describe that we need to get it working.

    First of all, see 'LibUSB driver for windows' here http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/PTP_Extension   .

    Ignore any message about replacing newer versions of drivers.

    When that is working, you will hear an audible 'on connection' event when you attach to PC with camera in playback mode.

    I'm very worried!

    Got a E32 error on my camera.
    To be specific here is what the camera says "a camera error was detected, will shut down automatically.. restart camera E32"

    It does this after taking continuous photos, say 10 in a row, after about a minute.

    Note that a day back I made a video while driving in the afternoon sun. Temperature was 39 degree C outside. I drove for more than half an hour. When I came home the camera was so hot I had to bring it back rolled in tissues.

    Could that have something to do with it? I'm sure its not dust or anything as I'm pretty careful and I clean it once a month.

    Dont advise me to take it to a canon repair centre.

    Note that the camera does take photos fine, as long as its taking them (i.e for a minute or so), then it shows the E32 error and switches off. It can zoom in and out so I'm not entirely convinced its lens error.

    Might the sun have blown the sensor? Could it be the humidity?

    Help!

    Are you still  in Pakistan ?

    I would certainly think so.

    In that cast throw it in the bin.
    Alternatively, it could be a good candidate for trying to override the warning by using the firmware function 'funnel' mentioned some days ago.

    http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6725.msg71339#msg71339

    Of course, that could destroy the functioning of the camera.

    ???

    Maybe it will recover when you bring it back to the UK.

    Yes I'm still in Pakistan, temperature that day must be at least 37 degrees and the aluminum body on the camera would have hiked it up to 45 at least, way past the 40 degrees recommended.

    The camera shuts off in around 45 seconds with E32 error, even if left untouched. Note that this does NOT happen if in playback mode.

    I carefully cleaned the lens casing, there was nothing stuck there. It is certainly NOT a lens error. I mimicked a lens error by blocking its path during extension, in that case it would give a lens error. This is something else.

    @MICROFUNGUY,

    The function by funnel you mentioned, can you integrate it for me? If it works I'll go so far as to say I'm even willing to pay you for it.

    Sending it to a canon repair centre in Karachi from Islamabad would cost me loads, more than twice the cost of the camera itself. Coming back to UK right now is not an option, I have to remain here for next 2 months due to work.

    The camera has not suffered any physical damage by dropping or by getting exposed to a lot of dust. I'm sure its not a lens related issue. Please look into it mate it'll mean a lot to me.

    I will follow this in that separate thread so that funnel can respond publicly what is proposed.

    It has never been tried before, we do not know what will happen.

    I was trying to bracket with Tv...1/3 EV values. Works fine in continuous mode if I do it manually, however I cant seem to figure out how to do it with time-lapse script.
