Hello & welcome, dfrancefort !
I took by 2gb SD card and ran CHDK program and formatted it and then made it botable
I copied the DISKBOT.BIN to the root of the card
I enabled the write protect on the card
Should be ok, i guess with "CHDK program" you're meaning CardTricks...
Inserted card into camera and started, but a little lost from there if in fact I did everything correct to that point.
Maybe CHDK is up & running ? - with CHDK running, you should see some additional informations / symbols on the OSD...
Do you see the CHDK boot splash screen on power-on ?
You should see the splash screen for 1-2 seconds when CHDK is starting...
Does the camera respond to key presses ?
Can you enter the CHDK <Alt> mode and open the CHDK main menu ?
(press PRINT to enter <Alt> mode, then MENU for the CHDK main menu)
But do I need a CHDK folder on the card with all the sub folders and files and if so where do I get that from?
CHDK works without those files like scripts, fonts, grids usw. - you can download one of the 'official' full CHDK packages from the Autobuild server, expand all files to your card and then replace the diskboot.bin (and maybe the ps.fi2) with the beta from the forum link...
