writing a simple .bat file

Specs: Windows 2000
I'm a total newby to all this & I would really appreciate some help with batch files written is notepad and executed in windows XP.

I would like to write a .bat file that will move files (all picture formats- .jpeg .bmp AND all video formats- .mpeg .mp4 .avi .flv and any other format there is) from my F: to F:PERSONAL\D folder. No other files like setup files, folders, .exe files in the F:should be moved.

The F:PERSONAL\D folder already exists on my computer.... IF any filenames exist in the destination folder, then rename to anything, NOT overwrite.

Thank you very much in advance.

This probablly not what you want, but most zip compression utilities and backup programs have those exclusion and overwrite options. If you want a one time move just zip the programs; move to the other location and unzip there or backup and restore there.
