Check to see if the battery is loose. i had the same problem where my camera turns on and off, i went to radio shack and found out that the battery wasnt "pushed" in all the way. if you open the battery slot and the battery pops out then thats the problem. just push it in until it clicks.

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. Or you can use the supplied software, or any other photo cataloging program.
If you have pics on the internal memory, you must get rid of them first. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, do the same thing with the new card in the camera.
Is the computer or the camera telling you the battery is bad? If it's the computer, you might have some bad pins on the camera, or your usb cable may have a problem with it. If the camera is reporting this on it's screen, not sure what the problem is there. I would instead, just transfer the pictures to the computer via a card reader through the USB port. Check your printer- many printers these days have memory card slots on them, and you can transfer pics to the computer through them.
Check the manual to discover how write protect is achieved with your particular camera/card
Some card rely on a silver foil stick[Smart Media] other have a switch. Compact flash rely on a control on the camera.
So you will have to have a good browse through the manual - do not forget that there is a Full manual in PDF on the software disk.
