Are both drives going to stay in the machine? There is no reason Ubuntu couldn't access the music from the XP drive if both drives are installed.

If you want to move the files from one drive to the other, than it is just a matter of copying them over. Nothing special is required, Ubuntu is fully capable of reading files from a Windows XP drive.

Thank you I'll give it a go,, oh yes both hard drives on the same machine seemed like a good plan so I can learn what I'm doing, my computer has been reliable ,windows? not so much..

If I posted the thank you twice sorry clear is not much for staying connected.
