You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

The camera comes with software, if you cannot find the disk, you can download it from here:
http://www.canon.ca/inetCA/en/serviceDetail/method/load/id/1/sid/50/mid/2000029/type/D/opt/1

Download this manual
http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/4/0900001034/01/DCSDV30_EN.pdf

Read pages 16 - 20, they explain all about different methods of downloading all images, just new images or even selecting specific images.

Check that it's not on macro. Had a colleague whose kid managed to put the camera on macro but screen gave no indication that it was on. Was stumped for days with it. Try going to tools and reset all.

I discovered a workaround for this problem...I pulled the memory card and inserted it directly into my laptop, which happened to have this type of port. It allows me to pull directly off the card. I still cannot connect via a cable, but this at least lets me get pictures loaded to my computer.

Hello Dear,
for a beginner only 02 shooting modes are best suited
  1. Auto (best for outdoor photography in day light)
  2. Night Snapshot (Best for the indoors even in day)
Warm Regards,

Try 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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Do you really need a driver?

Hi there, my name is Rob and I can help you.

To put the date stamp in a picture do this:
1) Make sure you have the correct date and time set in the camera. To do this:
Push the function/set button. Press the directional button down to select Date and Time.
Push the directional button to the right then down or up to set the date and time. Then press the function/set button to save it.
Then:
2) Push the selector button up to the camera icon, and press function/set. Scroll down to Date Stamp.
Scroll right to turn on the Date and Time Stamp, then up or down to until it says On.
Press function/set when your done.

That is your solution. Remember once the date/time stamp is embedded in a picture, you can't take it out.
Let me know if you have any further questions, and thanks for coming to FixYa. Please feel free to rate my solution a fixya.

It sounds like your display is working, but not getting a signal from the sensor. When you take a picture and open it on your computer, is it blank? If so there is either something blocking the lens (possibly the shutter) or the sensor is not working. If you get a picture on your computer, then it may be something loose in the camera connection between the sensor and the LCD. You can buy a working camera (the same SD750) for less than $50 on ebay I am sorry to say, but it would cost more to fix your camera.

I had a problem "turning it on"!
It is a complex process to turn on which Canon did in a very Japanese way, - meaning never straight forward.

review previous post:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t4016284-turn_date_stamp_canon_powershot_sd750

note time stamp meant for PostCard size pictures ( lower resolution and more square in format). hit function keys as instructed above to get to the "size" of picture. change from Post Card to Large, Medium or any other size. Should solve this.

ELECTRICAL contact spray can work. designed for sensitive situations. Also, electrical cleaner, or spray a bit into a cap and cotton swab it on affected areas to blot and absorb the coffee impurities out.
There should be a few micro stainless steel screws that hold the body housing. Take this off and clean with cotton and electrical spray all impurities on the circuit board. The circuit for the screen is likely not getting the signal to display. Also requires certain voltage that might be too low. For really gummed up stuff, try micro drops of Superzilla to clean, but blot off with alcohol after cleaning is completed. That stuff can eat the plastic eventually if left on but is harmless to damaging metal or glass. Non-toxic Superzilla.

Just about any video-editing program should be able to isolate single frames from your video. It won't be a very good picture, since the video mode records at most two megapixels per frame instead of the seven megapixels the camera can record for stills.

Hi Tamara. Only a technical can tell, when opening the flash. (In your case the whole camera.) Sometimes, when you look very good, you can see the light bulb is black on one (or both) side(s).
But usually the technician would measure the high voltage on the capacitor and wheel the flash is triggered he will check if the thyristor fires. But not being a technician, please don't open the camera and never play with an open flash light, because the voltage even in a small camera can be very hight.

Probably not, USB does not provide enough current to charge this type of battery, ergo Canon does not support USB charging. You can buy a third party charger and battery set for not very much and keep this camera working.

Hi
There are several things that could cause this. 

1- Check the battery door indicator switch under the battery door and beside the memory card slot. Is the little black switch damaged or missing? Try pressing down gently using a pen it with the door open and then press the power button. Does it turn on?

2- The fuse has blown and needs to be replaced. Offhand I don't recall where it is on the SD750 PCB or how hard it is to solder on a new one (depends on if its tricky to get at or not). Good thing is fuses are really cheap.

3- Other power problem with the PCB due to corrosion or impact damage. The PCB or 'motherboard' of the camera will need to be replaced.
