I'm removing some files from an old Win 95 drive, drive is installed in a external USB enclosure, connected to a Win XP machine.

I was trying to use the "Search" function to grab all the .jpeg files on the drive, but when I try to copy and paste them as a group I get a "can't locate source or drive" type of message. 

I can move them in small groups but it gets confusing- I keep losing my place and forgetting which ones I have already done. 

I've tried viewing them by thumbnail, list, etc. but no dice.  There must be a way to do this?

are you copying all JPEGs or just selected ones? If you are copying all, you can use the following command (which can be run opening the "run command" dialogue from the start menu):
robocopy <external>:\ C:\<destination-folder> /s *.jpg
where <external> is the drive letter of your external drive and <destination-folder> is the folder where you want to drop all the jpgs.

If that doesn't work, just let me know.
