Difficulties with Powerhot SX1 IS

I am new to this forum and apologize if there are already somewhere answers and I have missed them.
I have  the sx1-200h-1.0.0-1860-full_BETA.zip  (573KB) for Powershot SX1 finally successfully in my partitioned sd card (8GB) and most things seem to work (looks like the override tv is not accurate appears too long 64 s make rather 72 s). However I cannot access scripts (there are some in the script subfolder, the .bas files can be seen on computer) - they are not displayed when I open the script folder from within CHDK.
I want to do some time lapse recording during the coming Venus transit. I have added the intervalometer script as well.
Can anyone help? I have reloaded and rebooted several times without any difference.

Hello & welcome !

However I cannot access scripts (there are some in the script subfolder, the .bas files can be seen on computer) - they are not displayed when I open the script folder from within CHDK.
Make sure the script files are stored on the "correct" partition of your card, i.e. on the partition holding your images, the "big" one.
With a partitioned SD card, the first ("small") partition is only used to start CHDK; after that, CHDK switches to the second "big" partition, this partition will be the correct place for all CHDK files and also your media files...

The length of the path / filename is also limited, using 8.3 ("MS DOS style") filenames is recommended.
