- If you would like to have CHDK auto-load every time you power onyour camera, then go into CHDK's menu system. (Press "Shortcut" to enter <ALT> mode, then your "Menu" button to enter CHDK's menus.) Scroll to the bottom of the main CHDK menu to the "Debug Parameters" option.- Enter the "Debug" menu and scroll to "Make Card Bootable...". Press your "Set" button.
SX30IS version "GM1.00L" of the firmware.
Issues:- unable to make the "make card bootable" work. I can reload the firmware each time, but that's quite a pain. The process as described in the readme and instructions seems to work, but the result is base software any time I power the camera off and back on.- The instructions state to go through the "make card bootable" process, then pull the card out and lock it for write. When I open the door to remove the card, the camera powers off. When I set the card to write-protect, reinsert it, power the camera back up, it basically wont do squat except display that the card is write protected.Help with these two issues would be appreciated.
Constructive criticism: The instructions in the readme are wrong.
You really need to read, understand, and follow the instructions here : http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Prepare_your_SD_cardA few people spent a lot of time on the instructions you will find there. They cover a very broad range of cameras and needs. Let us know what doesn't work for you there ?
Yup. One more things for the huge group of lazy paid CHDK staffers to fix. Except there are no staffers - lazy or otherwise. Still, this has come up enough that the limited staff of not-too-bright volunteers might be able to fix it.
I fully grok the issues of open source. I dont mind rewriting the thing if someone will tell me how to resubmit it for consideration.

virustotal says eoscard.exe is a virus. Admittedly, only one hit out of a bunch of antivirus engines, but stilll...https://www.virustotal.com/file/f9f73eaa82c170cfa7b9289b23d62c07988810bc8c7ce1600320a6c2e8973bd5/analysis/
The first method in the detailed wiki instructions didnt work. Im starting on the second set.
Could you be more specific please ? Which first method ?
I tried a 2GB card, and it seems to work using method 1. Apparently this camera doesnt like the MBR on a FAT32 partition.
Your camera was released in 2010. It will not support FAT 32 booting. It says that many times on the page.
