Are you sure the time stamp is visible in the pictures, when you put them on a computer or when you print them?
I only see the time stamp visible in the play back menu.
To change that, you only have to press the display button, when viewing the pictures you took. Don't be afraid to lose the date and time, because it is in every picture, hidden for sight, but always there if you want to see it.
If this is not what you mean, please let me know, I will search more.
To set the date and time stamp on pictures, Follow the given instructions: Setting Date and Time:

The date/time stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.
Normally many cameras do not have date printing in its feature ..... while there wud a date setting ..... still try in your menu if there is any time or date stamping feature that needs to be turned on
you can only do date and time stamp under function button go to bottom where you can change size of pictures -go to right to W or wide-this is only setting you can do date time stamp on-when you change pic size and go back to menu you will see it highlighted and you can now turn it on-equals about a 2-3 megapixel size picture only-also just leave settings alone and have printer add it-date and time our always in pic data and most printers can add it
To get the date/time to be on your photos while taking the picture so you don't have to use the software later do this:
When in the mode to take pictures, press the round "Function Set" button and change the recording pixels to "Postcard 1600 X 1200". "Postcard" is the only setting that will allow the time/date stamp to be recorded on the picture.
Then press the "Menu" button and scroll down to "Date Stamp". You can select "Date", "Date & Time" or "Off". You can only do this when your pictures are set to the "Postcard" mode.
Set the resolution to PostageCard (1600x1200). Many of these cameras have only ONE RESOLUTION setting which allows you to have a date/ date and time stamp on the file, which will print on the viewed or printed photo.
How to do it: Turn the camera on M mode. Use the func. set. go down the menu to the resolution settings. (on the bottom of menu). Pick only the postagecard (1600x1200) setting.
I also was like you, and had an awful time with a camera I was fixing. I then looked it up on the Net and found an online user manual for the Canon SD 500, which should be basically the same.
