Most of cameras have a "review" button that looks like playback button on you DVD players and such. You can either delete all pictures in that playback mode or select pictures one at a time. Cameras usually have the DELETE button marked as a trash can symbol. They also ask you to confirm delete, and you will need to mode the cursor to "yes". Alternatively, you can delete images directly from the card. If you computer does not have a card reader, you can buy a USB card reader for under 10 dollars in just about any store that sells electronics.

Google = EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free and it should recover most if not all lost photos? I lost several photos on some SD cards and i tried this free program and it worked perfect. There's other free programs like this one but this particular one worked fine for me. It is simple and fast, give it a try.

Your camera uses 2 AA batteries, but if you use Alkaline batteries they will drain very fast. You are better off buying rechargeable batteries as you can recharge them several hundred times, cheaper than Duracell or Energizer Alkaline batteries in the long run. If you buy rechargeable batteries make sure you get a high mA capacity the higher the mA which stands for Milliamp Per Hour the longer the battery will last in terms of a charge.

When you say that the camera keeps scrolling when you view a picture do mean it scrolls to the next picture ? If so, you probably have it set to Slideshow which will automatically scroll to the next picture. Go to the main menu and look for Slideshow, if it is on turn it off.

Apparently not. Do you have trouble with the date or time?

You need a computer. You need to transfer the photos from the camera to the PC via the Interface Cable IFC-400PCU and the power shot software that came on the cd. You may be able to get a card reader device and plug the memory card from the camera in the correct memory card slot of the card reader and then browse the photos via the upload photos browse in facebook on the computer.
