Default Sony A330 - Date stamp question

i recently got a sony a330 and i have read the instructions on how to date stamp and i have it set up, but it's not showing up on the pics and the manual doesn't give any other instructions on how to do this.
does anyone know how to ensure the date is stamped on the pics when retreiving them off the camera?
thanks.

mkn-

Welcome to the Forum!

What that feature does is to embed the the proper information into the EXIF data, that is a component part of every photo taken. It does not stamp the date physically on the face of your photos.

Have a great day.

It is possible with certain printers.

Check out page 161 of the manual:

This camera does not have a feature for superimposing dates on images.
However, because the images shot with the camera include information on
the recording date, you can print images with the date superimposed if the
printer or the software can recognize Exif information. For compatibility
with Exif

Hope that helps.
