I have no idea where you got this totally outdated autoexec.bin. Delete ML directory, FIR and Autoexec.bin (as in "wipe card") and copy extracted nightly build contents to card.

yes, i did download again, it shows a newer date on the autoexec.bin, but the same error.

I tried with an older build from 2014 May, same error.

Okay, start from scratch:
- Set cam to factory defaults, including C.Fn settings
- Switch to photo mode M, liveview off.
- Insert card to cam and format there
. Insert card into cardreader and copy extracted nightly build contents to card
- Insert card into cam and run firmware update

I tried this too and i can't believe it, still same error.

I tried to run software update with the card that has ML on it, the 16Gb one, and that was working even before the reset.

Retry using EOScard, please. Make card bootable.
Wipe card's content after doing so (do *not* format card).
Insert card into cam and startup. If EOScard has done its job cam will get stuck and you have to remove battery. If Canon menu appears EOScard failed to make card bootable.
Report result.

Still not working. Something must be wrong with the card. i put the 16gb card in, and pressed trash can button, ML appears. Used update software procedure, works.

New 32Gb card, can't seem to manage to get it to work. I did make it bootable via EOScard, deleted everything from the card, but the camera started normaly, so i guess no bootable card. Copied ML, tried again, nothing.

I think it's time to try another cardreader and/or another computer.

Why do you want to do this? Skip that. Format card in cam and go on.

Last try: Format card in cardreader using NTFS. Insert into cam and format again.
Copy ML files on card and retry.

That's it, didn't work, going on sale for half the price.

Something must be wrong with this card.

I've heard so much about Magic Lantern I finally decided to try it.  Downloaded it on to my 7D, tried it out for a few days. Then out of no where the camera shut off and now won't power on.  I charged multiple batteries and tried different batteries to no avail.  Does any one know how to restart my camera?

JaiCanon, did you try starting the camera without the card inserted?

Put it back on the card, it should not care.

Hi

Is it possible to turn off weird things in photo preview? I have tried everything, ... It's sometimes better to see just photo, ...

Thx

Please try yourself and then write down something. My teacher for photography told me the first rule RTFM. I know the manuals.

Describe "weird things" or just post a screen snapshot.
