Hi polarry,

do you know someone with good computer experience?
It should be possible to re-initialize your CF card using diskpart.exe on Windows, but this should do someone who knows what to do. If you are not familar with diskpart you should not try it because you can destroy data.

@Polarrys: do you have an external CF card reader / writer?

Hi,

I also have the missing firmware message on a 16GB CF card, but ML works on a 2GB card. Several pages ago there was a Windows tool linked which I also tried and this said I have no boot flag on the 16GB card. Changing the boot flag with this tool also allows me to use the 16GB card.

And it is (in my case) regardless if the boot switch firmware file 5dc.111.card_bootable.fir stays on the CF or not.

I'm still testing this boot problem and if there is a workaround with Windows or Mac OS system tools to make a CF bootable. Maybe it is a problem of the file system (FAT32 on the 16GB card) or the CF card is not a typed as a big floppy or removable, maybe it is a USB HDD type. I'm not sure if I had used this card as a bootable USB hdd for Windows setups earlier...

Is the ML software insied the auto exec.bin file? If so I think it is not possible to use different ML files (in my case for the 5DC and the 7D) at the same time on one CF.
Is there a way for hot swapping the CF card without rebooting the DSLR?

Regards
Nils

PS: nice tool, I'm looking closer to the several functions.
