G11 locked card?

Hi!

  After some reading I've made a card bootable. After I lock it I'm able to see CHDK menu. Great!  :D

But my camera doesn't work!  :( Card is locked, so nothing can be written but even the lens is not showing up. I can only start my G11 in playback mode. Even if I press ON/OFF button, it starts in playback mode.  :o

I have great CHKD firmware, but only in playback mode.  :'(

What is wrong?
Marcin

Hello & welcome, Marcin !

Even if I press ON/OFF button, it starts in playback mode.  :o

Using CHDK, most newer cameras always start in playback mode.
Just press or half-press the shutter button once to switch to record mode
To start your camera directly into record mode, hold the power button for ~ 1 second.

The SD card lock is just a software thing, with CHDK the camera completely ignores the lock...

Thank you very much, it works!
I'm surprised that lock is a software thing.   :blink:
