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.

You need to remove the battery at once and allow the camera to dry., Now if you are able to open the camera , use the correct tool to do so and clean the inside from all moisture before the battery is set back.

It looks like the sd450 only uses a mini-b usb connection to connect and the other side is standard usb. You can get this cable almost anywhere. Here is a link to google shopping where there is a ton of online retailers to choose from:

The camera doesn't care what operating system you have on your computer. It'll work fine with no computer at all, for that matter.

Press the MENU button. Use cursor-left/right to select Setup (wrench and hammer). Use cursor-up/down to select "Date/Time". Use cursor-left/right to move between fields and cursor-up/down to change them. Press FUNC/SET when done.

Make sure that the card is 2GB or smaller, the camera only supports SD not SDHC so it won't recognize a card larger then 2GB. If it's 2GB or smaller format it within the camera and then you should be good to go.

First, determine if you are moving while you press the shutter. This is more of a problem in zoom than at other focal lengths. Set the camera on a firm surface, zoom out, press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then press the rest of the way. Is the picture clear? If so, then you are the cause of the blur.

If the files themselves are actually corrupted, there is not a way to fix them-- if instead there was some sort of error with the transfer of information between the camera and computer, then this is something that you can troubleshoot.
Your best bet would be to remove the SD card from the camera, (this is accessible from the door on the bottom of the camera) and use a regular SD card reader (something you can pick up at your local camera shop, or even at Walmart) to view the files on the card. This removes the camera from the equation, in the event that there is something wrong with it.
If you attempt to transfer the files when using just a regular SD card reader, and the transfer fails or your computer indicates that the files are corrupted, then you may need to resort to either a professional data recovery service (which may be offered by a local camera shop), or you may just not be able to recover the files in their entirety.

If you have the PICBRIDGE option switch onto that when trying to download again. If nothing comes up the memory that holds the photos is at fault. A new camera will be needed for this one is bad

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrean

Typical lens error. You will need a replacement lens.
