Did you check in Camera> Options to see where its saving too?
Also connect it back to the SAME Win7 machine and see if encryption was enabled ~ or if it was sourced from another BB or S60/other OS device using Encryption. Another thing to check in Win7 is if the volume was set to READ ONLY for permissions.
