Do I need a PC card reader, or is it sufficient to connect the cam to the PC?==== [[Image:Card-Reader.jpg|right|thumb|120px| a card reader]] '''A. ''' You will need an SD card reader connected to your computer (or installed in the computer) to install CHDK. This is the easiest and most convenient way to install CHDK. Another option is to use a camera which behaves as a USB Mass Storage device. Even if your camera does not support this feature, you may be able to borrow such a camera from a friend for the installation procedure. Finally, using the PTP protocal and a program like CHDK_PTP.EXE, it is possible to load CHDK directly onto your camera. However, this typically is not a good way to try and install CHDK if this is your first time. Note : many cheap readers have no sensor for the write protection switch on the card, and this is great. Otherwise, you have to switch the card to "unlocked" everytime you want to put something on the card. ---- Summary: Please note that all contributions to the CHDK Wiki are considered to be released under the CC-BY-SA Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://chdk.fandom.com/wiki/FAQ"
