If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.

But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.

It's usually because you need to change the internal battery for a new one, very easily located next to the battery port, directly underneath pull it up and replace it with a new CR1220 and replace the batteries too just to be on the safe side

Move the tiny slider on the card to the unlocked position.

When you say "the 2 batteries" are you including the date battery? See the "Replacing the Date Battery" section beginning on page 120 of this manual.

Use a card reader to connect your card with the computer, as long as it can be detected by your computer, you can try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

The manual is saying, Batteries, some 10 times. Not fully loaded, put in the wrong way. battery is old. Not the right type, and so on.Be sure your battery is charged and ok.If you do have a multimeter, you could check the battery.On the multiemeter the voltage should be a little (few tenths of a Volt) higher than what is printed on the battery.When it is just lower you have to charge.When after charging the voltage stays below the printed value,the battery should be replaced.To be sure just put in two new alkaline batteries. If everything is ok, you know you have to buy a set of new batteries.

On this camera you have a supplemental litte battery that is just beside the AA batteries. If you pull on the little tab that says CR 1220 you will find a battery that looks like a battery watch. Just replace it, go back into your date/time settings and you should be good to go! It worked for me!

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 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.

Maybe you have to format the card before the camera recognizes it

this is very easy to fix- switch your camera on, grab then lens around the edges, and carefully give it a firm twist. It should click and turn on.
