Windows 7: Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail ???????

Outlook Express to Windows Live Mail ???????

I know just enough to mess things up so please be patient. Old computer Win XP and Outlook Express quit working. Purchased a new computer with Windows 7 and Windows Live Mail, Micro Center suggested try to remove old HD and use an USB to IDE adapter to recover letters, photos etc. Worked like a charm Tried to recover OE mail and import into WLM. Followed directions I found on the web to find the OE .dbx files on the old drive. After much searching and drilling down I found the .dbx files in local settings, application data etc.copied them to a scandisc cruzer. I opened WLM and went to the import mail, it asked where to find files and I went to browse and the drive that scandisc was in, now the problems begin. The browse window in WLM finds the drive but shows nothing on it. Check the computer for that drive and inbox, sent and all the rest are there but it will not show up in the WLM browse window. I created a new file on the scandisk and placed all the .dbx files in it now back to WLM import, the browse window finds the new file I created great next I get an error message "No messages can be found in this folder or another application is running that has the required files open" I could use some advice on what I'm doing wrong, thanks
