I have done a sweeping search on my PC to find all files with an mp3 extension on one drive only. I want to copy these files into a folder on either my desktop or onto an external hard drive but it won't let me do either. It just comes up with the error box 'cannot copy file: cannot read from the source file or disk'

Any ideas why this is or if there is a way round it?


I'm using Windows XP Home Edition service pack 3

Thanks in advance

is the file able to play? if able to play, then it should copy normally. if it doesn't play then maybe the file maybe corrupted or bad sector maybe...
