Hi dear!
Your favorites resides in the following folder
Systemdrive:\Documents and Settings\username\Favorites
SYSTEM DRIVE: THE DRIVE IN WHICH THE OPERATING SYSTEM IS INSTALLED (NORMALLY ITS C)
USERNAME: the name of the user account whose favorites you want to copy.

if your system drive is C and the uername name is SMB then the address would be:
C:\Documents and Settings\SMB\Favorites
hope answered the question
thanks

    Hi SMB_146 clarification... so if I copy and save that file to an external data storage device, like jump drive or ex-hd I can reload it to a freshly re-installed system? if so do you think it will work to transfer list to a second XP machine as well?

Migrating XP to Windows 7 (Using your Network)


If you are thinking of buying a new PC and trying to replace an old XP system to a new Windows 7, you might want to transfer your old favorite files to your new computer. Either transferring through a Easy Transfer cable, Network, or via USB

This procedures assumes that your old XP is still working and connected to your home or office network. and your new Win 7 is also connected as well to your networkBoth of your system and computer must be connected to the same network, either in the office or home, because it is easier to transfer files in this way, effectively and efficiently, this is practical than using USB flash drive or any external disk, though the process is similar.

Ensure that you have the Win7 InstallationDVD, or the Easy Transfer Software fromMicrosoft website, ready to be installed on your XP system. but be aware this is for 64 bit version system only, please visit Microsoft website search and download Windows easy Transfer and select "x86" in the file name for 32 bit or 64 bit, install this the same way you've done with ordinary software. In your Win 7 however, this software is automatically installed so do not bother yourself.

In this instance you will be asked if whether you want to transfer your whole data from all user accounts or to just specific user only, in this process you can also select specific files to transfer, but in order to transfer all accounts, both of your XP and WIN 7 must be logged as an Administrator.

So this procedure is Migrating through NETWORK, the other two procedure is Easy Cable Transfer and USB, external Hard disk.

1- Prepare both systems and ensure both are connected to the network and working, Start the XP computer and log in as an Admin
2- IN XP , Open up the and start the Windows Easy Transfer DVD, and look or browse for SupportMigwiz. if you have downloaded this simply select Start> All Program> Windows Easy Transfer for Win 7, it will load automatically. Simply read the screen for additional info and click Next
3- A new screen pops out and please select a Network as an option to transfer
4- Click This is my OLD COMPUTER, Still in XP Windows Easy Transfer will then generate a password for the transferring process, because in order to transfer files through the network you will be required to enter a password (record the KEY)

After you enter the key, at this time Windows Easy Transfer makes the connection and scans the Windows XP system's contents and components. Once this is over, you can practically choose which data you want to transfer, or you want to import, just like customizing the items you wish to transfer. After you have decided which is which, click Transfer, then a progress bar will appears the process occurs.

The final screen will then show up indicating the process is complete. Confirm to see if the file you have chosen was actually transferred, then close all window, including the Easy Transfer Windows.

Restart your computer, please. Congratulations!

I am transferring images to my computer, which I have done before. Now I am getting the message "Save folder not found?" Have I moved it? Do I need to create it? How? Where? Please help....


My solution is to unistall your current canon software that holds 15 canon components in your computer. You will find them under system task and select remove programs. After you have uninstalled the program, reinstall your "Canon Digital Camera Disk" and follow their prompts. Now you should be able to transfer images again as per normal.
I have answered this question in detail under another question postered by "whitecar631" under canon "save folder not found" canon sd1100.
This worked for me, but I don"t know how to prevent it happening again. I do know the day I lost all "my pictures", I had previously deleted a large file in my documents. I also experienced "save folder not found" when I tried to transfer images from my canon ixus 100.
I was lucky enough that I had all of my original SD Flash Media Cards, so could transfer all my photos again. I have since put all my photos into labelled folders instead of dates and images.
Hope this helps, it appears to be a problem in the canon program. Joyce

Both Windows XP and Windows 7 have a "Settings and File Transfer Wizard". Run the wizard on the "old" computer, and say that you are running it on the old computer, and it will save all your files.
Transport the files to your new computer (DVD-writer or USB memory-stick) and run the wizard, and say that you are running it on the new computer, and "import" your files & settings.

If both computers are connected to a network and file sharing is enabled you can transfure files that way.

If both computers are not connected to a network

1. use a floppy to copy your favorites from one computer to another
2. use a cdrom to copy your favorites to another computer
3. use a flash drive to copy your favorites to another computer

Other methods exist.

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.)
