I have a Canon Rebel XT. After taking a picture, the viewer shows the shot upside down and when I down load to my computer they come in all upside or sideways. Just started doing this and I've had

The EOS cameras have some sort of sensor built in to tell the camera which way the shot should be orientated on screen and when they are transferred to the computer.
It sounds like the sensor is jammed or broken and sensing (for some reason) that the camera is upside down when the shot is taken.
If you don't want to pay to have it repaired you can use a program to rotate them or turn of the image rotate option in the menu. I believe this ignores the sensor information.

I have a Canon Power Shot SD1300 IS my pc is windows XP and when i try to get pics off camera i cant. i have down loaded the software.

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Installer Canon PIXMA iP1000 Printer

If you attached the printer FIRST, before you installed the CD disk that comes with the printer, you will have conflicting drivers.
When you install device without installing it's drivers, Windows 'sees' the device, and matches up one of the thousands of generic drivers it has.
You need THE drivers for YOUR printer.
Windows will have a conflicting issue with which drivers to use. The ones it matched up, or the ones you installed.

A Driver, is software that allows an operating system to 'communicate' with a device. (Windows XP is an example of an Operating System)

Should you have connected your printer first, THEN installed the CD disk, this is how to correct the problem,

1.Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs. REMOVE anything you see listed with Canon's name in it, pertaining to your printer. There may be more than one program.
You should be asked if you wish to restart your computer. NO!
Close all windows until you are back to the desktop screen, then shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

2.Computer off, and unplugged from the surge protector. (Electricity)

3.Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. (Count, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

4.Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.
(Number 3 and Number 4)
What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

5.Now plug the computer back into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.

6.After Windows has fully loaded all the way, and any programs you have in the Start Up menu have loaded, install the CD disk that came with the printer. Follow the installation instructions.

7.Once the installation is done, you can restart your computer if asked. If you are not asked, go ahead, and restart your computer.

8.After Windows has fully loaded, and any Start Up programs have loaded, plug the USB cable from the printer into your computer.

9.Plug the printer into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the printer on.

You should see, "Found New Hardware", and possibly, "Found Canon Pixma ip1000"
