I borrowed a friend's laptop, which has a lot of teaching on it that I wish to copy to mine(perfectly legal, by the way.) Here are the facts..

My computer is a desktop, my friend's is a laptop. I have a regular ethernet cable and a USB a-a cable.
I don't know what folder the teachings are on, but they are all loaded into Windows Media Player.
I am concerned about the teachings playing in the right order. In other words, I am looking at her list now, and each title is broken down, for example, Bill Johnson. If I click on Bill Johnson, I will see all of his CDs on the computer, and each of them are labeled Track 1, Track 2. How do I transfer them, and keep them flowing in the right order? Eventually, i want to get an Ipod or other MP3 player, and transfer them in batches and listen to them on the road. Am I making any sense?

Also, how do I deal with 2 different artists having Track 1, Track 2? Will the computer keep them in order?

I also have at my disposal a 12 GB usb drive.

By far the easiest way to transfer the files is by using the flash drive. you could set up sharing folders and link them via the ethernet cable, but as you have the flash drive, it would be easier. If you open up media player and right click on a track, there will be an option to 'open file location', this will take you to where the folder is stored.

Make sure you keep them in their original folders, otherwise they will overwrite each other. The computer will keep files in alphabetical order, unles you choose to specify another method, right click and arange by, size, name, type.
