Hi guys! its very important to get this thing up and running so I decided to come to the Forums. I downloaded CHDK onto my 4 gig memory card. After I turn it on it will show the CHDK logo and return to the regular screen, opening the menu and rolling down to firm update. after clicking on it text will show up saying UPDATE FILE ERROR!!! I have tried formatting the memory card and installing CHDK again and the same message shows up. Please help, thank you.

If you are getting the CHDK logo on boot,  you must have the SD card lock in the lock position and the card formatted as bootable ?

If so,  then you don't need to also go to the firmware update menu item.  CHDK is already loaded - you don't need to do it again.

Press the Set and the Disp buttons at the same time.

You don't need a script, see raw options in http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_User_Manual

edit:
but raw is reportedly broken on this camera, see http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6953.120
Don't forget what the H stands for.

There is really no need to deselect a script. If you really want to go back to the default one, you can select default.bas in the menu.

It should be fixable, this is an alpha port, it's not finished.
