Try to download pictures to computer and says no connection
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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa
The camera displayed "IN WRITE PROTECT"
Remove the SD memory card and with the contacts up and facing the back, locate the small tab on the right hand edge. Slide it from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position. Reinsert the card and try again.Good luck!

Camera wont focus
If it recently sustained a drop or other impact, the lens mech is damaged. With the lens out, visually inspect it to see if it may be slightly crooked or askew. If so, gently try to "pop"it back into alignment. If not, sand or other debris may be caught in the mechanism. While the camera is turning on and the lens is extending, gingerly (but firmly) tap the cameras bottom against a counter or other hard surface. This will often let the debris work its way out.
Let me know if this works or not.
