Transfering address book and Favorite Center fom one computer - -

Hello,

I've been trying to figure out how to transfer the address book and Favorites Center from one computer (a Toshiba 64 bit) to my 2nd computer (a Gateway 32 bit). I've read articles---which just confused me more, tried scanning it, coping, pasting. And more. I'd rather not have to purchase a CD or floppy --- is that neccisary or is there another way? I'm sure it"s evident that I'm a "newbie" to the computing world and need a lot of help----I'm signing up to take a class. So if you're able to help me, can you send step by step instructions that I can follow?
Thanks very much,
LV Young

Your Favorites are stored in Cocuments ans Settings folder under your name and in the Favorites folder.
Eg. C:\Documents and Sttings\"your name"\Favorites
Copy the Favorites folder to a USB memory stick and then copy it to your 2nd computer in the C:\Documents and Sttings\"your name" folder - exactly as per your Toshiba.

To transfer your e-mail address book from one computer -
1. Open Outlook on your Toshiba, then click on File, then Export, then Address Book - save this file (remember the file name and the location where you saved this file.
2. Copy this file to a USB memory stick.
3. Open Outlook on the Gateway computer.
4. Then click in File, then Import, then Address Book, then to the USB memory stick (could be your E: drive) where the exported address book file is located.
A copy of the address book is now in your Gatway computer.

Saving Favorites before updating Garmin c340


Use MapSource to transfer the Waypoints from the unit to your PC. If you lose them, you can then transfer them back. (I updated a C330 from 4.40 to 6.10 and did NOT lose them, however.)
