getting rid of the folder but keeping the contents

  Magik ®© 09:26 04 Feb 2005

hi, I hope this makes sense, I have loads of folders with music and images on them..what i would like to do, by the way, this is an external HDD, where was i, oh up each folder, and put the contents in one large folder, I have the grandkids music on most of them, but to look for anything, we have to open each folder in turn...the only way i can see, is to drag all the contents into the laptop, then drag them all back again. is there another way.

thanks for staying with it.....

search for *.mp3 or whatever format - (having new folder ready -select all and copy to new folder-then delete old folders ;)

open 2 folders a new one to move files into and one with the old files resize so that each fills half of the screen.
select all files in old file and copy to new.
when copyed delete old folder.
