Hi SW,

Your favorites are located in a folder similar to

C:\documents and settings\*yourusername*\favorites

Hope this answers your question

Ah ok..
I'll do it for you in lamen terms no problem lol apologies in advance if any of this sounds to patronizing

1. Go into "My Computer" on your desktop
2. Double click your "C" drive
3. Open the "Documents and Settings" folder
4. Open the "(your computer username)" folder
5. You should see a folder called "Favorites"

Alternatively, go into Start Menu - Search - Files or Folders, and type "Favorites" lol.

I assume you know how to burn it onto a CD? Let me know if that works.

Its really very easy,but depends on what you've learned about copying files from your hd.If you only have 1 HD thats not partisioned for this stuff,just put in a blank floppy,right click the folder and select "Send to floppy."Should easy fit.

Good idea by the way,i do to cd-r.

Thats a good idea Bluto, rather than waste a cd makes more sense to use a floppy. Thanks for that input.
