I purchsed a Power Shot SX100IS recently and I lost the starter CD required to download photos from the camera to my computer. Can I somehow get by without this disk or do I need to get another one? If so. Where can I purchase another one? A reply would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

This type of question comes up several times a day here at Fixya. Unfortunately, Canon does not offer replacement software disks. You can search eBay for a replacement disk, but would instead recommend that you please see this article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos and videos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.
Bad news. For the date embedded feature, the image size is FIXED to the 2M (1600x1200) setting with the compression set to Fine.
The only other way I can think of, is if you are printing from software that came with your camera. When you start the software and transfer your photos, there will be a box to check if you want to add a date stamp to your photos.
Sorry about that! Mine does the same thing, only I never put the stamp on mine.
Hope this will be ok!
You can connect the camera to ur pc through the cable provided and switch to usb mode or play mode and then go to My Computer and see the camera as an removable disk. Open it and you will find your photos stord in it.
