Is there a DOS command I can issue to copy MP3 files existing in seperate source directories into 1 target directory ? I have WIndows XP on my PC.

I have directories with names that all start out with
D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\:

For example:

D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\3 Doors Down\Away From The Sun\

D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\Usher\Raymond vs Raymond\

D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\Usher\Unknown Album\

D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\Usher\New James.net\

D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\The Zombies\Unkonw Album\

And within each of these directory paths are files with an extension of "MP3".

Do you know how to copy ALL of the fiiles with an extension of "MP3" from within all folders
that start with the directory name of "D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\":
to a new folder titled C:\Something\

For example:
Copy D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\:The Zombies\Unknown Album\Time of the Season.mp3
Copy D:\MyDocuments Are Here\My Musci\Something-newest\:The Zombies\Unknown Album\She's Not There.mp3


to:
C:\Something\Time of the Season.mp3
C:\Something\She's Not There.mp3
