NOTE: If it is not there, you can browse to the import folder depending on the version of Windows you are using:

XP users : My computer > C drive (local drive) > Documents and Settings > Users > Login ID > Application Data > Chat Editor > Import

Upon connecting, you will see a screen that says "Transfer Mode" (if you are using the Nova 7x,7NXNC, 8.1, 5.2 or 10s), a screen that has a "Mount" button (Nova 7), or a screen that says "Connect Storage to PC" (Nova 5). If your screen says "Mount" or "Connect to Storage", you will need to press that button.
