Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have just bought the Kodak M381 camera and when I set the date and time and click ok, the time is set but does not display on the LCD screen at any point, so when I review my pictures there is no way of knowing when I took them. You can date the pictures retrospectively but that takes time and will be incredibly tedious and you soon forget. In the manual it says to select the date time stamp but I am unable to find it in my set up menu and I'm beginning to think this camera does not have this

My canon powershot camera goes to set the date and time every time I turn it on. I set the date and time, take a few pictures, turn off the camera, turn it back on again and it ask for the date and time to be set again.
