AVG free is currently detecting a virus in CardTricks143.exe
"Worm/Autoit.JDC"

I guess its a false positive?  ???

Yes (but I would say so, wouldn't I ? - just kidding)

Seriously: if you suspect false positives on whatever file, try uploading the suspected file(s)

to a site like
                             VirusTotal - Free Online Virus and Malware Scan -

                        or  Virus Chief

they will run them through a whole bunch of virus scanners.

hope that helps,

wim

Is there a chance that Card Tricks can be made to work with Windows 9x? It can see the card in the card reader and place the build on it, but it won't format the card or make the card bootable.

There's no need to:  CardTricks v.139 (last to support 98/Me) is what you want ...

get it on fe50's drop here: http://drop.io/chdkdev 

or (if zShare works for you) here: http://www.zshare.net/download/1982625511b5e97d/

cheers,

@Joe 1956 & wim

Is there a chance that Card Tricks can be made to work with Windows 9x? It can see the card in the card reader and place the build on it, but it won't format the card or make the card bootable.
It's not Cardtricks fault: the bootable.exe (an also the winbootable from the russian forum) doesn't work on Win98 / WinMe (we tested this in the german forum).
CT just calls the bootable.exe with the fitting parameters, but if bootable.exe fails (errorcode is 3 as i remember) CT can't do anything...

So the easiest way to work on a OS < Windows 2000 is:

Format the card from a Windows command prompt with  format X: /fs:FAT

Make a card bootable with a disk editor (i suggest HxD from http://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/ )
  There are also portable versions in many different languages there to use it without installation: HxD Download site...
  A pictured guide for this in german language can be found in the wikia: Manuelle Bootkennung...
  With the screenshots there it should be also usable for non-german speaking users...

@fe50

thanks for clarifying that, fe50 !

i guess i should check out if i can convince ANY compiler to make a win9x/ME executable ...

Thanks for the quick responses.

With 1.39 I "formatted" the card, and it put a "vers.req" on it, but make bootable is grayed out. My attempt at formatting with DOS failed. Got an invalid switch response.

What's an old guy to do?   ;)

@ Joe 1956

well, supplying more information would help.

How big is the card you're trying to format ? (cards > 4 Gb can not be formatted as FAT)
If your card is 4 Gb or smaller try formatting as follows:

1) find your card in 'My Computer' and remember it's drive letter

2) Open a DOS box and type:  "format  X:  /FS:FAT  /X" but replace the first X with the drive letter you found in step 2
    (don't type the " ) and press Enter
 
3) If format complains about invalid switche(s), check which one by typing "format /?" - this will show you format's help
    if you can't figure out what the problem is, please dump the help to a file: "format /? >fhelp.txt" , and post or PM this
    file (i don't have '98 handy, and can't remember if the options for format changed)

4) If the 1956 in your nick reflects your year of birth then you're 3 years younger than me  :D

PS Once we got formatting sorted, we can do the hex editing ...

Yep, '56 is when I hit the ground.

I have a couple of 4 gig cards and a couple of 1gig cards. Have used Card Tricks with all cards on a friends XP machine with no problem. Just can't get it to work at home after formatting a card in the camera, and I don't get to his place all that often. I still have a couple of cards with CHDK on it, just want to get it down pat with what I personally have, and my brain doesn't grasp things like it did even 5 years ago, especially DOS. 

Here's how I did the DOS:



Thanks for all the responses.

Sorry Joe, can't see anything in you post ???

wim

BTW You should also be able to format without DOS: 'My Computer' -> right-click card -> choose format
        Just make sure it uses FAT not FAT32 (there should be an option for that)
