I'm running W-7 too, and don't have any major issues putting files onto my HD and/or external devices like USB thumb drives.
I pull the SD card out of the camera (some people like to use the jumper cable), put it in the card slot in the 'puter and open it in the Explorer. If I don't have a receptical file I create one where I want to store my images, and after opening the DSIM folder on the card go to the folder that the camera assigns to your shoot (Typically arranged by date), open that to view your files (clips/sessions). They should show a *.MP4 file extension at the end.
With your recieving folder over on the left margin, click on your video file and drag it over, then drop it into your new folder.
Presto!; Video saved!
My video files have been using up massive amounts of data - 35 min. of video = 4.3+ GB!!!
If you're saving to a thumb drive make sure it has lots of data space or you'll pack it full in no time.
Another thing I do is re name the file and folders so I can later ID what they are, leaving the date code on the end.
When uploading to You Tube I just load directly off of the SD card. It would be better if I could edit the file first so it doesn't take 6 hours to upload a video, but I have yet to find an editing program I can wrap my head around sufficiently to do anything with it.
