Hi. I have a playlist of different song files that are in different folders. I want to copy all the song files into a new folder. I have an m3u playlist that has their locations. Is there a way to tell the computer to find all the files targeted by the m3u list and duplicate them to a new location?

I know I can find each individual file and manually copy and paste them into a new, consolidated folder, but I am hoping that the m3u list allows for some automation.

m3u and song files are on my Android phone, which shows up as a drive when I connect it to my Windows 11 laptop.

Thanks in advance. -J

if you can see the files in windows explorer, then just do a wild card search in file explorer via file extension, and copy the search results to the new folder. for example type *.m3u in the search box
