After locking the SD card and starting the camera, it starts in preview mode. When I try to change the mode to shoot mode it crashes (got a black screen) but if I turn the wheel, the shootmode starts.

I tried 2 different SD cards. 4GB Lexar SDHC Class 4 and 8GB Panasonic SDHC Class 4 (with 2 partitions).

The cameras released this year don't require partitioning to work with large SD cards. They can boot directly off any size card.

Try this:
- format the card in the camera to one FAT32 partition
- manually copy all the files from the latest CHDK build to the card
- start CHDK using the manual 'firmware update' method
- use the Miscellaneous stuff --> Make card bootable menu option to make the card bootable
- lock the card and see if it boots and works correctly

Thank you, nice to know.

- use the Miscellaneous stuff --> Make card bootable menu option to make the card bootable
- lock the card and see if it boots and works correctly

I formatted the card in the camera and copied all files and folders of the full release to it.
But when starting the cam, switching to playback mode and take a look at the playback options, there is no "Firm Update..." entry...

What am I doing wrong?

You have to start the camera in playback mode with the playback/review button on the back.

Ok, thanks I did not know that I can turn on my cam with this button too. :-)

But now there is a new problem.
Chdk worked perfectly using the update method, but when I press "SET" on "Make card bootable..." nothing happens, execpt the scrollbar disappears for a second and the card seems not to be bootable formatted.

Sorry about that - looks like funnel hadn't finished implementing the 'make card bootable' stuff.
He has posted a patch which I will commit to the code repository - the next build should have this enabled.

Are you saying that when you start manually you can switch to record mode without the camera crashing?

The Make bootable will not work for fat32 until a new patch is applied to the trunk. Sorry, I missed some updates of the trunk and forgot to add it. I compiled one for you so you can try until the trunk gets updated. When you select Make card bootable is normal to not see anything, it should boot if it worked.

That doesn't matter.

Sorry that was my fault. It is the same as before. After applying the "update" and pressing the playback-button again the cam crashes.

Thank you, the formatting worked. But I still have the crash (and the cam starts [on/off button] in playback mode).

Starting in playback mode is normal - if you hold down the power button for 1-2 seconds it should start in record mode.

Crashing when you change modes is something funnel will need to look into.

I downloaded a clean version and found no problems. The only thing I can think of is that after the startup in playback mode and pressing the playback button once again the camera shuts down. This is normal even without chdk. To go in record mode from playback mode press the red rec button or the shoot button. You can start the camera directly in record mode by holding the on/off button.
