I have A570 IS and today I met with CHDK. I want to read e-book but when i save a file on A/CHDK/BOOKS folder. There is also a readme.txt file. I can read readme file that written in wordpad but i also want to read texts written in Microsoft Word and PDF's. Is it possible? Because i tried but i couldn't. And also cannot see other files although they are written in wordpad. Only possible way to read something is to delete the content of readme file and write something in it. Can you help me?

  • no, the text file reader only displays text files. reyalp 00:04, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
  • The CHDK text file reader can only work with plain text files, PDF is not possible. Put your text files in the \CHDK\BOOKS folder. When you save files with Wordpad, select 'Text file' as document format (not RTF), or better use Windows Notepad instead. You can place all your plain text files there, you can also put them into subfolders or on any other folder on the SD card, there's no limit. Fe50 00:15, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
