DOS in COMMAND prompt IN XP MODE

Specs: Windows 7
In windows 7 I'm in XP mode in command prompt. I would like to work with DOS programs in command prompt. The computer recognizes the files I have on the flash drive that I want to copy over to the command prompt. I use the DOS command (copy to) to copy the files over but they won't copy over. Anyone know why?

"I want to copy over to the command prompt"

Files are residing on storage media such as your hard drive or a CD/DVD etc. The Command prompt, when running is residing inside your RAM. You cannot copy a file to your RAM except by opening the file.

If you use the COPY command without a target path, the file will be copied with its original name to the path shown at the command prompt.

XP mode is a program that is running a virtual machine image of an xp computer. C: on it isn't C: on W7.

Since I don't have a supported W7 to install xp mode I can only guess that you need to make the usb available to the xp vm and that the usb has to either be in fat or you need to allow access to copy the files if ntfs format.
