I think that I've only posted about it twice here on this board. Index of /chdk/
hot damm...it actually works. At least with a 2GB card.
I just copied the bin file to the card root, ran bootdisk, locked it, put it in the camera, set it to read mode turned it on and it worked. Didn't have to do a thing beyond that but configure it.
Have you tried the following in a DOS box:
format f: /fs:fat
[Change "f:" to the drive letter for your card.]
You should have to confirm that you want to use 64k clusters.
The command should fail if your card is not partitioned to <4GB."
this doesn't work.
I'm using a sandisk combo cf/sdhd reader in winxp, usb with a sandisk 8gb sdhc card
it refuses to format the card as anything other than fat32.
my onboard sd reader won't work with the card.
yes the problem is that I can't delete the partition in xp. To even use the card-reader at all it has to mount as a valid drive, and unless the card is unformatted entirely I can't do anything other than format it as fat32. But so far at least I got some raw shots of my a650. This is more a problem with the card reader than anything else.
I actually like it better this way, I don't have to load the bios manually. Great stuff.
but dcraw doesn't store exif info in the image. And altogether this is still a kludge
