    Trying to copy my locomotive roster in jmri from one computer to another computer and can't figure it out . Looking for help on how to copy it on a thumb drive and then put it on another computer instead of type it all in again.

    You can drag and drop in Windows Explorer with the flash drive or use a cloud service like Dropbox to move files.

    I'm not sure what jmri is. What software are you using? I do my roster in Excel.

    Check the location of the files on your original computer and put them in the same place on the new one.
    On XP mine is C:\Documents and Settings\<yournamehere>\JMRI
    May as well copy that entire folder over , all relevant files will be copied then.
    In decoderpro check the "Edit/Preferences" menu for "file locations" and "roster" submenus.
    If all that is correct you may need to rebuild the roster file with "File/rebuild roster"
