Camera is less than a week old and every time I power it up, it prompts me for date/time. I fill in valid info, and proceed to shot. However when I plug into my computer to transfer photos it has forgotten date and therefore categorization is horribly invalid. Please help me resolve this issue!

Re: Repeated Date/Time prompt.
Hopefully, you have already resolved this, but if not...
What you will need is to replace the date/time battery for your camera. It is a 3V battery that you can purchase anywhere for $1-$5 and it slides into a small compartment located in your main battery compartment. If you look into the battery area on your camera, you will see a little tab that has CR1220 or something like that. Slide this out and you will see what I am referring to. These batteries should not have to be replaced more than once a decade, however sometimes in rare occurrences, they will die prematurely. It's an inconvenience, but an easy one to remedy.

The camera's internal date/time "backup" battery is supposed to maintain the date/time for about 3 weeks with the camera turned off. If the camera is not used for a longer period, the date/time will need to be reset. If you are having to reset sooner than that, it is likely that the internal battery (not user replacable on most models) has failed.
Firstly, set time and date in the camera: 1. Display MENU. 2. Click on each of the tabs until youfind a dropdown with Date/Time on it. 3. Click on this and follow the prompts. 4. On completion press OK. The date and time will be effective from the time you press OK. I am not aware of any Canon camera that does enable the entering of time/date on all images. However, it is recorded in the EXIF data that all digital cameras record with every image. You can use ZoomBrowser - a software program that comes on the CD with Canon Cameras - to write the date/time on selected images. The date and time written will be the actual date and time the image was recorded on your camera i.e. the date and time you took the photo. With the image open you should be able to find the time/date option.
yes its possible. Please remove the internal battery once and then put it inside after few minutes. This will reset the date time. while you switch it on once again. it will prompt you to enter new date and time.
To reset the date connect Camera to PC. Open Easyshare Software, Go to Tools and Select SYNC. This will usually set the Camera Time/Date to the PC Time and Date. I have the same problem,(DX7630) cannot Move to the Right or use the Enter on Joy Stick so I am stuck with the Settings that were used last. I have contacted Kodak and there are No replacement Parts available. Just Great, I have a perfectly working Camera($500) and all accessories but it is basically useless due to a defective $1.00 Part. Last Kodak I will ever Buy.
Not 100% sure about this model, but most have another battery in the camera for the clock functions. That battery could be low.
Try looking in the manual for the clock battery and pull that and replace it. See if that helps.
There is a small re-chargeble battery inside the camera
that charges of the main battery. Chances are that battery
had just drained when the date/time reset occured, but should be fine after you recharge.
