Problem copying files

gbninegbnine Posts: 1Member
Hello to everyone at Programmer's Heaven.
I am trying to copy some music files from a hard drive to a usb drive and then use the usb drive to transfer the files to my other computer. I am in the folder where the files are and I am using the command: copy *.* e:music.
'e' being the usb drive and 'music' being the folder on the usb drive.
But this will only copy the first music file in the folder and no others. I've also tried, copy *.mp3 e:music but with the same result.
I would copy them over one at a time but I have dozens of music folders to do and am desperate to find a solution.
Hoping someone can help me. Thank you.

    You should also place the *.* at the end of the destination:
    [code]
    copy *.* e:music*.*
    [/code]
