Move vbox virtual machine to different location along with snapshots

I've virtualbox3.2.6 installed on my ubuntu 9.10 desktop and I've some guest OS's running
How do I move vbox virtual machines to different location on the same computer and as well as to a new computer along with all the snapshots of the VM's?.

Please need help!

There are several way of moving VMs:

1. Automatically (and safest):

Simply use File > Export appliance inside the VBox program. At the new location (other PC, different VBox installation) use File > Import appliance.
Note: These 'appliances' may also be used to import into different virtual machine software, like VMWare etc. BUT: snapshots, to my knowledge, are not integrated, so you will have to create a new snapshot of the imported machine.

2. Manually:

Follow the instructions given in this post:

Note: this will move machines and snapshots, but may require some tweaking.
correct File > Export

Export & Import working fine and it's only exporting the current state. But, I could not collect all the snapshots. I also tried editing virtualbox.xml file and vm's xml file and it shows all the snapshots in the snapshots tab of VirtualBox but none boots properly. No way for snapshots?
