This is a general computer question not a BF1942 question, but anyway, what version of windows are you using? XP or Vista. Are you administrator or limited user. This is a security permissions issue from the sounds of it, can you access the folders you are trying to insert your files in through normal windows explorer?

Can you access the game folders where you are trying to move the files then?

Running Vista as the administrator means absolutely nothing, it's a only a limited admin account with restricted privelages, you need to run winzip as a full admin with elevated privelages, which means either setting it to "run as administrator" in the shortcut properties or turning UAC back on so that the OS can elevate you automatically.
