    Thanks everyone for your help. As I still can't see the memory stick (E drive) in the command window (and it is seen in File Explorer) I decided to try Barman58's suggestion and downloaded MediaMonkey. Worked exactly as said and I now have all 1300 mp3's on another stick and all in the one folder. Thanks again to all.

    Not sure why you guys are hell bent on using third party software, For such a simple problem.

    I guess nobody here has ever heard about the KISS method.

    Open file explorer
    Go to your USB drive
    In the search bar type .mp3
    when the results appear press Ctrl + A then Ctrl + C
    locate the folder where you want the mp3 and press Ctrl + V

    I have a flash drive with many mp3's on it, however they are split up into various folders. How can I copy all mp3's to my fixed disc without the directories, ie just copy the mp3's without having to access each individual directory. TIA, Mike
    Why not something simple. In file explorer highlight the flash drive type *.mp3 into the search bar wait til it scans all your folders then pick and choose what you want and drag them to your new folder on your fixed disk.

    Well I guess we all missed it too. May indicate how reliable most of us perceive the Explorer search to be.

    I have a folder “C:\Users\Pyprohly\Desktop\x\q”. If I navigate to “x” and search “f”, folder “q” gets listed. There’s not even an “f” in the path. It’s just “f” that does this. Go figure.

    Sml156 just said this one post ago, although you mention “*.mp3” instead of searching “.mp3” which is more correct because the former excludes folders (for some reason).

    I open the command prompt as administrator and type E: and enter. It says "The system cannot find the file specified"
    It should say “The system cannot find the drive specified.”?

    Not sure why that happens to you, both examples work exactly the same for me in file explorer.

    I don't bother with the star * anymore I'm getting lazy in my old age and can't be bothered pressing two more key's.
