well you don't have to move them, just leave them where they are and mount the windows drive, and just access them that way ..
i am going to point you to this thread
for you can see how you mount and access your windows partition ...
this thread is targeted for a NTFS partition, and if you don't have an NTFS partition and it is actually fat32 then when your reading that thread and when you come across this line below :
Quote:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/NTFSdrive ntfs defaults 0 0
just change the part that says ntfs to read vfat

and even if you still want to move everything over to your linux partition (for some reason) then you'll still have to follow these steps to mount the drive, and then when you do mount it, you can then move them ..

cp /path/to/windowsmp3 /path/to/linuxmp3
