    *.mp3 and *.m4a should probably be fine.... Been a while since I used it. But if you are using teh /e switch to recurse subdirectories, I dont see why not

    I know XCOPY should do it as well...

    kind of looking for the whole script please.

    I know there is a /mov flag, but i am not certain how to use it or script the entire command to move the files only and music files only.

    If you arent into scripting, might find this one better.....

    Robocopy GUI

    Takes the guesswork out of it all...

    In the source, try just using c:\Folder\Folder\*.MP3, and then the source as the folder you want the files moved to....
