    Newbie after 5 years on Mac, How to find Safari favorites to transfer


    I will be picking up Surface For Latop 2 tomorrow from Staples. I think I transferred all my mac files to a 500gb external HD. I have opened all the folders on the ext hd and can't find my bookmarks/favorites. Apple community is useless, their finder app is useless. will someone point me to the favorites folder on a mac HD ? Otherwise I'll have to have Staples do it and I want to avoid the $$.

    Thanks and Cheers
    Mikey

  2. Nokia Multimedia Transfer + Safari Bookmarks = Not Working

    Okay, asked and answered:

    Bookmark transfer never worked for me *until* I deleted:

    ~/Library/Application Support/Nokia Multimedia Transfer

    on my Mac, restarted the Nokia Multimedia Transfer app, and re-configured my device.

    Now Safari bookmark sync is working find in both directions.

    I suspect this may all be due to the fact that I've been using the Nokia Multimedia Transfer application since very early betas, so something remained as a legacy in the application preferences that was preventing bookmark sync.

    The only annoyance, and this is a known issue with the syncing mentioned in the Nokia FAQ, is that the transfer of the Safari bookmarks on the Mac to the Nokia device doesn't include the folder structure, so everything in sub-folders in the Safari bookmarks
    just appears all together, alphabetically, on the N95.

  3. Nokia Multimedia Transfer + Safari Bookmarks = Not Working

    I'm using Nokia Multimedia Transfer v1.3 (4740) on a MacBook running Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.2 with a Nokia N95 8GB.

    Under "Device Settings" in Nokia Multimedia Transfer I have both options under "Bookmark Sync" checked ON.

    However after transfers to/from the N95 are completed (i.e. after I click "Start Transfers" in Nokia Multimedia Transfer and the sync occurs), there's no evidence that bookmark transfer has taken place: there's no "Safari" folder in the N95's browser bookmarks,
    and there's no "Nokia N95" folder in Safari's bookmarks.

    Music and Photo transfer happen without problems.
