Do you mean the windows command prompt. THERE IS NO DOS IN WINDOWS XP.

Why not just use Windows Explorer. Copy and paste is so much easier than typing out a command line.

Unless you really are using DOS then in which case it will never work. DOS precedes USB by about fifteen years,

Why not use explorer in windows to copy the files?

If you're trying to do this in XP command prompt, well it will use the same drive letter for the USB drive as XP itself does. But then if you're running XP why do you need to do it from command prompt?

If you're actually using dos you should post back what version you have. Anyway, you can try what the poster in this thread advises:

You're not really green until you're soylent green.
