I just got a new A810 to play around with, but I've been having trouble getting the camera to recognize the second partition
Copied the diskbot.bin to the 500MB part and the rest of the chdk to the big part. Got to start-up manually by firmare update and found the menu to swap the partitions.
Then put the card in my laptop and it still only shows the first partition.
Put it back in my camera and that now "sees" the big part and not the 500MB boot section. Since bootdisk.bin is on there I can not load chdk anymore to swap the partitions back in the camera and I can not copy the bootdisk.bin because the laptop does not "see" that part of the card.
However I have run into a problem with anything larger than a 4 gig card.
With the small partition as primary with DISKBOOT.bin it boots right up and works great until I try to download the pictures. I can't get the computer to see the big partition with the images without using SDMinste.exe to swap card paritions. Then before putting card back in I have to use SDMinste.exe to swap card paritions back for the camera to boot. What am I missing?
FYI I have two differnt size DISKBOOT.bin files Downloaded from Waterwingz for testing= 132kAutobuild Download =214kI guess the larger is the newer? And the one I should be using?
( Note also that newer cameras do not support dual partition CHDK booting. )Anybody know if this is one of "those" cameras?
4g cards are fine if not saving raw files but...Firmware update it is then.
It just really sucked when I would forget to swap the partitions back and when I get out there to shoot no CHDK!
Can't autoboot on cards over 4g, OK got it!
