SOURCE: where is the serial number?

Open the LCD, and you should see a "Batt Release" lever on the body. Slide this lever to the front and remove the battery from the rear of the camera (it slides down). The serial number is a ten or twelve digit number on a plate beneath the battery.

This camera stores the video using a unique method, and does not allow you to simply drag and drop the video files - you also can not easily find the camera and play the video real time to transfer it ...
You need a compatible software program, meaning the software needs to be compatible with the camera ... there are many available ... but if you are looking to buy software check to see if it is compatible with your camera before purchasing ... I wonder, what software will you be using to edit the video?
For example, you can use Final Cut Express. It will find the camera as long as the camera is connected via USB and there is power applied to the camera ... once connected, look at the camera LCD screen and select "Computer" for the connection ... then, in Final Cut Express, select Log and Transfer (File menu), and you will get a new window. You camera should be recognized and you can select the video takes that you want to transfer and then hit "add selection to queue" and the transfer will begin.
You will first want to check in Final Cut Express where the transfers will end up on the computer, and pick a suitable location with plenty of hard drive space (Final Cut Express menu / System Settings / Scratch Disks) so you can find them if you want to at some point in the future.

Assuming you will be editing in Final Cut Express, you won't actually need to find them, but its important to select a scratch disk location that has plenty of hard drive space, and if you want to copy one of the clips to use it directly to just upload to YouTube or something like that, you'll know where they are (they will be .mov files, and can play all by themselves using Quicktime or any similar program)

As always, refer to the manual if you run into any problems ...
Hope this helps!
