Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I recently bought a Canon A590. I've taken perhaps 20 photos on half a dozen occasions and I'm having trouble getting the photos onto my computer (only 2 years old, up to date). I can usually only retrieve about 30% of the photos completely, another 50% "half" the photo with the other portions white, gray or black, then 30% I can't access at all. I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem; at this point I'm ready to return the camera and be done withit!

I am running vista. After transferring some photos from my finepix S5000,(via USB) I cant take pictures anymore. When I turn on the camera a white canvas appears instead of the object I want to photograph. Everything else appears normal. I have tried to take a photo and it comes up as a white canvas.
