The pics of me playback sideways, then when i rotate them, they look squished down & way too wide. How can I look at them rightside up without the squish effect? am i in the wrong setting or something?

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.
Go to the playback menu and select it (you may have to adjust the circular option know to get to the playback menu). Once there, scroll to the picture(s) that are locked by using the sideways selection arrow buttons. Then select the up or down arrows, which will lock or unlock your picture. You can also erase any locked pictures, in case you want to, by formatting the xD card. Hope this helps.
Press the Home button. Touch the right-pointing triangle to enter Playback mode. Here you can review your photos and videos. You can rotate, crop, protect, and delete your pics and protect and delete your videos. You can also print using Pictbridge.

This is a function of auto-rotate. With auto-rotate set to OFF this should not happen.
If it still happens with auto rotate set to off, then perhaps one of the custom functions has been set incorrectly.
TRy and reformat the CF card through the camera. Youll lose the pics for sure but you cant see them anyway. You can also check for bent pins in the CF slot. Sometimes if you shut down the camera in mid write to the card, itll mess up the cards FAT (file directory)
To rotate a vertical image, display the image in playback mode, press the down key to cycle through the three positions: 90 degrees counterclockwise, 90 degrees clockwise, and horizontal. Upside down position is not available.
