Is your camera always in the auto mode? Try to put the main dial to P. Your camera is almost automatic, but won't use the flash, unless you put it up yourself.
If your flash pops up, even when the camera is of, you have a mechanical problem. Something broke off.
In your camer there will be seven Full Auto modes : full auto, portrait, landscape, close-up, sports, night portrait and FLASH OFF. Turn the Mode Dial of the camera clockwise as far as it will go to disable the flash. In Full Auto, the flash is also disabled in landscape mode and sports mode.
Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it popo up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.)
I assume that flash is turned on. 430ex flash will fire automatically only in AUTO mode. On manual modes you mus manually force the flash to fire. If flash doesn't fire at all, consider to claim the vendor or let the vendor to check the flash mounted on your camera.
Flash will automatically pop out only in AUTO mode, if the camera needs some additional lightning. In manual modes, you should use the flash button located at the left down side of the flash compartment, to manually force the flash to pop up
Could be the metering mode you are in. Could be the subject is too far away. Could be ISO is set wrong. Could be the lens aperture can't open up enough. Could be the exposure compensation isn't set correctly. Could be FE Lock is still on and the composition has changed. Does the <flash> icon continue to blink? Then you are too far away.
I believe there are 2 modes of usb transfer that you can pick in the camera. They are set somewhere in the menu in the options. If you go through the menus thoroughly you'll find it. One option is for connecting the camera directly to a printer and the other is for computer transfer (there might also be an Auto setting but I don't remember for sure). Make sure that setting is set for computer transfer. If that doesn't fix your problem, re-install or update EOS Utility / ZoomBrowser.
