Push release button then move the battery cover to the right to release the cover. Don't pry straight up.

No, the Canon A560 does not have any internal memory, you must use a memory card.

I have a Canon Powershot A560. The date and time stamp do not work. I checked the manual and it says to replace the battery located under the flip-up panel on the left side of the camera. I can not...

Think your problem is that you are looking in the wrong spot. Don't know why your manual is telling you to look there (are you sure your manual is for the A560)?
Your CR1220 date/time battery is located in the regular battery compartment. Look right beside your AA batteries. You'll see a little flap labeled "CR1220". Slide this open with your fingernail, and take the little coin battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement.

My Canon PowerShot A560 says that the memory card is locked...even after I change the batteries. What can I do to fix it?

Have you tried the switch on the side of the SD card in both positions? Failing that, the camera will need a new SD slot fitted by repairer.

My 2-year-old Canon A560 suddenly cannot load photos onto my computer. I've tried 3 different USB Cables 2wo different ports and 3 different computers. It won't open up on any of them. I've tried looking...

If that camera uses a memory card, just buy a cheap card reader for about $10 at wallyworld or an electronics store. It is easier and no software or connection problems.

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers (try Walmart) sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

The memory card that comes with the camera is only to verify that the camera works. And yes it's a horrible card with only about twenty pictures that can be stored by it. You'll want to buy a larger card. They're very inexpensive these days:

1GB ~ $6

2GB ~ $9
