    mp3 songs downloaded on windows 8 will not play on windows 10 windows

    I downloaded my mp3 music from my old laptop, which was operating on Windows 8, to a 1TB external hard drive. Now when I try to play the mp3 music on my new laptop, which operates on Windows 10, some of the songs will not play. Can this be corrected?

Windows 10 does not find songs on my Ipod. I wanted to copy them to my laptop. Neither Itunes nor Groove Music "sees" them. It only sees the pictures on the Ipod. Any pearls of wisdom for me?
