Re: recorded movie by mistake. any way to print a still...
QuickTime and other apps will allow you to print individual frames, but be aware that the resolution of video files is much lower than still pictures, so you can only get a decent print to 4x6 or ~5x7 in most cases. Good Luck. DigiChick

DPI (dots per inch) is an output parameter and is irrelevant to the camera.
Let's say you took a picture and want to make some prints of it. You make a 4x6 print and a 8x12 print. Those will be printed at different DPI settings but It's exactly the same file from the camera, just printed at different sizes. The camera can't know what size prints you might make from the picture, so it simply puts in a default value.
If you really want to change the DPI setting as recorded in the file, you need to do it on a computer using a photo editing program.
I don't know what manual you're reading but the camera will only record 80 seconds at the lowest resolution. This is a very old camera that still uses the now extinct XD card. If movies really interest you, consider getting a new camera. The new models have literally hundreds of new features that I'm sure you will really like.
Once the picture is recorded, it's recorded. You can edit it in the usual way.
Keep in mind that the scene modes merely give the camera a hint as to what you're taking a picture of so it can adjust the shutter speed and aperture appropriately. The camera doesn't know what you're taking a picture of. You can go ahead and shoot landscapes in the portrait mode or portraits in the landscape mode, and the camera won't care.
this is cause they are set to write protect ...so ...in the camera ..click on the file ..than options and remove the write /copy protection ..or in other cases its the read only checked square case.. in the computer the same ...click right on the file ..than properties..and remove the case that says read only...
This is a really simple problem and easy to solve. Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen). This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD. There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD. There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting, however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame, there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera, so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.
This should be problem solved for future recording.
This may sound like a dumb question, but are you sure that you had the camera set to the video recording mode? Several of the Canon digital PowerShots will show the movie icon on the LCD screen even when the camera is in image record mode. Why, I don't know. Ensure that you set the camera into movie mode by pressing your Func/Set button to go into the Function Menu and then selecting the movie mode that you want to shoot in. Press the Func/Set button again to get out of the Function Menu and you will not only see a movie camera icon on the LCD screen, but also a set of numbers in the bottom left hand corner representing the recording resolution (e.g. 640 pixels) and the frames per second (e.g. 30).
And just in case you did have the camera set in movie mode, make sure that you don't do what many people have inadvertantly done and mistake the video clip for a .jpg image in the playback screen. Videos will of course have the movie camera icon in the upper corner of the image and are viewed by pressing the Set button twice to begin the playback.
If both of these steps were performed properly then your camera may have a hardware issue. As a last resort, try performing a reset from within the menu just to be on the safe side and see if it makes a difference. If not you may need service. Hope this helps.
Still photos (what you think of as printable photos) and movies (video clips) are completely different beasts, unfortunately.
In order to extract or print individual frames within a movie, you will need some sort of movie player/editor software. Standard "photo"-oriented software won't know how to deal with video clips.
