If you used your memory card with another device you must "reformat" it when it enters the this device. It is likely that you used it with another camera that is why it won't read here.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Depends on what you set each photo to be.....
I don't know THAT PARTICULAR Camera, but both my Compact Canon, and DSLR Canon, have settings where I can adjust the size of the photo from a small size, where it shows what I took to a extremely Large size that I can blow up to cover a wall and still have plenty of Pixels left over.
So the number of Photos per SD or other card can vary dramatically...... But with the settings I have, I get something like 5000 Photos per 4Gig SD, and they are of a good size.

Do you really need a driver?

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.

I have found if my camera flash won't work I change the angle of my picture and then it works. You may have to move around a few times or even change the camera to long view and that will make it work too. Hope this answer helps?

Most digital cameras, with zoom lenses, will generate an error, when the lens can't move freely. If you manually stop it, it will give the same error. The camera will retract the lens and generate an error. But if a mechanical error causes the lens not to operate as it should, you get the same error. The camera stops to prevent greater damage. If you can see anything that obstructs the movement of the lens, try to remove it. If you can't see anything, you have to fear something inside the camera is defect and only can be repaired by a technician. Just consider if it is worth paying for a repair, when new camera's are becoming cheaper by the day.
