Hi,i,m having problems when trying to download my 720p HD video clips from the SD card that i use in my Panasonic TZ7 Camera, i put the card into the card reader then bring up the SD card window and drag and drop the individual files to "my videos",on a file size of less than 100Mb it copies successfully but on bigger files of say 200 to 500Mb it will get about halfway and then just stop, the mouse stops working and the PC freezes, the only way out is the good old switch it off at the main switch and restart it again, i,m now wondering if my PC is up to the job , its an Acer Aspire 8735G with an Intel T6600 Core 2 Duo processor 2.2 Ghz, 800 mHZ FSB and 4 Gb of RAM,any way i try to copy the longer clips ie transferring the clips to a flash drive from the SD card then copying from that or trying to load them into Windows Live Gallery gets the same result,with the SD card connected i can view the longer clips ok but cant successfully copy them to the pc, anybody else had this issue?

I had this problem once and discovered (whilst trying to defrag)that the system hard drive was failing. The defrag wouldn't run any higher than 40% so I downloaded the disk-maker's own diagnostic utility. Sure enough the drive was "in danger of imminent failure". Since fitting a new drive I've been able to transfer very large files no problem.

I'm not suggesting you rush out and buy a new disk, but you should check it like I checked mine, if only to eliminate that as being a possible cause.
