This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for future recording.

Check your camera settings in movie mode for the correct settings for time lapse, normal, slow motion and fast motion. A slow recording memory card will not produce your problem but will take longer to save the file. If you shot the movie in PAL and played it on an NTSC TV, the picture would be in black and white with no sound and vice versa. ALWAYS format the memory card in the camera, never on a PC

Can i take movies with my canon powershot SD1100SI


Yes. Select the Movie mode (movie camera on tripod icon). Press the FUNC/SET button to select options, then press FUNC/SET again. Press the shutter release button to start recording, press the shutter button again to stop recording.

For full details, refer to the section "Movie Shooting" in the manual. If you don't have the manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_sd_series/powershot_sd1100_is#BrochuresAndManuals

How do you use the camera recorder on Canon powershot s31s camera? I would like to know how to record, save and then download short "movies" on the camera.


Just to the right of the viewfinder is a silver button with a red dot in the centre. This will start / stop recording. Set the camera dial to Auto, press the red dot button, and your recording will start. When ready, connect the camera to your computer with a USB cable and the movies will download at the end of the still pictures.
You might find recording suddenly stops after a while - this is because of a size limit for movie files. You can get over this by changing the resolution that the camera records at. It's quite complicated so I suggest checking the user manual or downloading it from the Canon webiste to choose what quality if resolution to use.

Optical zoom problem in movie mode


Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

Downloading movies from PowerShot SD850 IS to Mac G5


Sounds like you are watching the thumbnails but the files are still on the camera... try downloading/transfering via iphoto.. the files should show up in your iphoto library and if you double click them, it will launch quicktime and allow you to play it...
let me know if that gets you there...
