Loaded but incomplete? A700

Hi - sorry if , etc!

CHDK loaded in firmware update mode, Alt FuncSet gives me a screen:

Script
Load Script from file
Script shoot delay
Autostart
Load def....
Parameters set
Save params
........................default script........................
<-back


None of them seem to DO anything. I don't remember seeing them in instructions ?

Zebras buttons don't work - file missing it says.
do I need to load something else, I want to do focus bracketing??
Can't find instructions on what to do next.

Ah..... UNDER the text it also says:
"failed to load fselect.flt
file not found"

I'm not sure if I'm just being thick or...
I haven't found the right instructions or...
I need to load something else or...
it's not working properly
 :-[
Perplexed.
Any pointers appreciated!

You did not expand the entire CHDK distribution zip file (recreating directories) onto your SD card.

Also, if you are using a multi-partition card, the stuff in the CHDK directory needs to go on the 'large' partition.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Gotcha - no subdirectories, oops :D

I read somewhere that there's a focus-stacking forum - don't see it, can you point me?
Tks

Not sure if there is a special forum for it somewhere,  but the CHDK forum has several threads on the subject.  Here's two :

http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=4881.msg47544#msg47544

You can use the forum search function to find others.

You might also search the CHDK wiki.  You'll find stuff like this :

Unless you are taking videos,  filling a 2GB card tends to take a long time for most people.
