I don't know much about Windows XP, so the following is really a wild
guess, but it's easy to try and may work.

You mentioned that you tried to use a USB flash drive to copy the files
and it didn't work.  I assume the flash drive is formatted in Windows
(therefore should have some kind of FAT filesystem), in that case you
can use Arne's advice above, use "mount -t vfat -o utf8 [device]
[mount_point]" to mount your flash drive, and see if it helps.

If your USB flash drive is automounted in Linux, first run mount command
without arguments to see the device name of your flash drive and the
mount point, then use "umount [device]" to umount it, and use the
correct arguments to remount it.
