Perhaps you can type canon powershot sd900 software into Google and download it from the internet. As long as it is from the canon website, it should be safe. Ask a techy friend to help you if you're not sure. Good luck!

As much as it hurts - cards go bad all of the time. If this is a card that you have used previously with good success and it now wont read on your camera you might try a data recovery service to pull whatever they can from your card otherwise it could be a bad card (even if new) and you will need to get a new one.
Good luck

If the photos were on a memory card and you haven't done anything to the card since you deleted the photos then you may be able to recover at least some of the photos. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Take the memory card out of the camera and put it into a card reader attached to your computer. Cross your fingers and run the program.

Possibly a defective memory card--if you're lucky. Have you tried using a different card?

Try 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). 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

This error normally comes when your Canon camera lens gets stuck in the barrel itself. There are some steps which can be followed to resolve this problem which as follows,
STEP 1: Switch on the camera while you hold the shutter button and connect it to the AC adapter or to the USB cable at the same time.
STEP 2: Now by default the lens should get properly aligned if not try to twist them slightly by holding down the camera lens with soft hands.
STEP 3: Just push and pull the lens slightly as it extends automatically.
STEP 4: Now when the lens is in the hard surface power on your camera.
STEP 5: Try to hit the camera softly beside the lens which might solve the issue.
You can try to format the memory card completely and then reinsert to your camera which might be the issue at times.

Camera shake is more likely the reason. These cameras do not have image stabilizers so a steady hand is a must. A mini tripod is a great item to use. Or just sit it on a ledge and press and see if it is any better. Also setting it on self timer (while on the ledge) gives the camera a chance to be stable without you touching it. Hope this helps. Also check what setting you have it on.

Zoom lenses - stuck in its housing or fully extended are caused by factors like - knocks, dead butteries debris or some form of corrosion .
This is a risky method and I would recommend for the last option, if other conventional methods don't work.

Provided your lens has collapsed into its housing - you try a little knock on the camera with your palm while pressing the on/off button. If that does not work, you are on your own - to decide.

Maybe it has a battery for the date settings, and the battery is faulty.

Unfortunately, there is no viewfinder dioptric adjustment on this model. You will need to wear your glasses.

In the menu, use the "format" function. Warning: you lose all your photos. Make a backup first to your PC.

This is serious business! If you value you camera, take it to a service centre for proper servicing.

Check your shooting mode. Some features are available for a given mode only. If you set your camera to a pre-programmed mode, many features will be greyed - not available.
