Do you try to set the white balance, wheel the camera is still in an automatic mode or in a scene mode?, because that won't work. If you keep having problems while in a manual mode, let us know, so I can look again to this problem.

Since there is no shutter or aperture priority mode on the A550, the shutter speed is predetermined by the shooting mode. You can try changing the ISO speed when in a certain mode, but the camera may compensate by changing the aperture setting rather than the shutter speed. You'll have to experiment.
You can place the camera in Long Shutter Mode, however, when you want exposures times between 1 and 15 seconds. You set that by pressing the Function menu and Func. Set button when in [Camera icon]M mode, then using the < and > buttons to cycle through the long shutter settings.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
Some memory cards have a Write Protection switch on them. To check this please remove the Memory card from the camera. Check if there is a "lock" switch on the left side. Slide this switch to the "Unlocked" position, and reinsert the card into the camera.
This should resolve the issue and the error should go away.
In case the issue persists, it could mean the the write protect on this card was perhaps set by mistake while it was connected to the computer.
You will need to use the computer to cancel the read-only setting. Please connect the card to your computer through the camera or a card reader and cancel the write protect on the card.
If this doesn't work for you, please comment and let me know, and I will be more than happy to assist you to further resolve your issue.
I will appreciate your feedback and positive rating.
Try by removing the memory stick and then attaching the camera to
computer with USB cable. Switch on camera. It should open up a dialogue
box in Windows XP (or similar OS). Select 'open folder to view file' or
open Windows Explorer and open camera folder (probably displayed as new
drive E: or like that in My Computer) . You may also check whether
there is an option of selecting "camera as mass storage device" in
settings menu of camera. If yes then select this before connecting.
If you have no means of attaching the camera to the computer, place
an empty memory stick into the camera. In review mode, a message
indicates there is no data, but there is in the internal memory. While
still in review mode, press the menu button and go the the "Setup"
section, the last option. Now, scroll down to the "Memory Stick Tool"
section. From there, highlight the "Copy" choice at the bottom, and
select the OK option to proceed. You will get a message: "All data in
internal memory will be copied." Press OK, and it will copy everything
in the internal memory to your memory stick. Then, when you have
plugged the memory stick into your computer, you will find a new folder
entitled Copy. All your photos from the internal memory of the camera
will be in there.
as far as i think VISTA is not compailant with the CANON software. since vista s a latest version CANON will have to release a new version of its software for VISTA. so this must be requested with CANON.
