Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

How do you get the dates on the photos to download?

\015 I need to be able to see the date the picture was taken when I email my photos. I have followed my instruction booklet to the "T" and I've been able to get the date to appear on my camera viewer, but when I download the pictures to my computer and print them out, the dates do NOT appear on the pictures, either on the computer or prints. I have had a local professional photographer follow the booklet's steps and even he can't figure out what steps I'm missing. Can you help?\015
