Hi I am a newbie :D

I have everything working but scripts, I have tried a few but none work,

The most important one is an Intervalometer, I have ultra int loaded but when I press the shutter button it says
Script Started
Script Finished

and that's it

In the top left corner I get a message (uBasic:1 Unk stmt)

anyone have any ideas

Sounds like you have saved it in the wrong format. Script files need to be plain, ascii text. Not unicode, not wordpad doc etc.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

You can use TextEdit, but make sure that (a) it's in plain text format (not rich text) (b) it's saved in Windows Latin 1 format and (c) that ".txt" is not added to the filename.

I much prefer TextWrangler - free powerful programmers editor from Bare Bones - see http://www.barebones.com/
