Hello:

What is the easiest way of copying SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) reports along with their Data Sources from Report Manager on Server A to Report Manager on Server B?

Server B already contains SSRS reports, and I don't want those overwritten.  Again, I just want to copy and not move reports from one server to another.

Thanks!  Much appreciated!

you can use SSRS rs.exe

see
Sample Reporting Services rs.exe Script to Migrate Content between Report Servers
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn531017.aspx

and\or try
MS Reporting Services Migration Tool

Thanks, EugeneZ!

This doesn't move reports, does it?   I only want to copy reports and "paste" them into the new server.  And, I want to do so without destroying the reports at the server that I'm copying to.

Also, I went to both of these links.  The MS Reporting Services migration tool only works in SharePoint mode.  And, when I go to the page to download rs.exe, all I see is an RSS feed file.

Help!

it does not destroy SSRS just copy   reports.

looks like the above links are not easy for you

thus try this utility RS Scripter. RS Scripter is a very popular for such tasks, it was written by Jasper Smith,(known sql expert)

With that tool, I get an error saying "Client found response content type of '', but expected text/xml....."

It's disappointing that there's no easy way of doing this.  And, I can't do this manually, because some of the linked SSRS reports refuse to have their .rdl files downloaded.
