When we repair cameras we repair by replacing a part like a button board. Unlike year past when camera could be fixed most often without parts todays digital almost always need parts replaced. Manufactures are producing much cheaper products who's life span is far shorter than the 35mm of the past.
The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb cards are not compatible. The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.
By default Olympus cameras do not print or show the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.
However the computer will only show the date information as part of the photo properties.
You are shooting with the exposure bias set too far on the plus side, not familiar with the 550, do You have the user manual? If You look at exif data of posted photos, You will see that many are taken at settings below the midpoint. If You don't have a manual, go to the Olympus website, many manuals are available for download. You may also find the function in the menu based on sunny, cloudy, etc, this is important to set right
I don't know if You have all the literature for Your camera, Olympus usually puts out a short version, and a more detailed one. I am not familar with the 390, suspect some setting is incorrect. Have You tried leaving the batteries out long enough for it to return to defaults? Give it several hours, see what it does.
