You don't need the Canon software.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.The switch doesn't actually control anything on the card, it engages a sensor on the camera. Thus you could glue something onto the card in place of the switch.

The low-battery indicator will appear near the upper-right corner of the display when the battery level drops. If it's not there then the battery level is fine. When it appears, get ready to replace or recharge the battery.

Probably caused by a Microsoft update. Try using a separate card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.

The SD750 is a camera, not a battery charger. To charge the battery, use the supplied battery charger or a compatible replacement.

It sounds more like camera motion than a focus problem. Make sure you don't move the camera when you press the shutter button. It's easy to **** the camera when you press the shutter button quickly.
