Adding third-party samples to the library

Wonder if anyone can help, please.

I'm adding third-party samples to the Library, dropping onto Places, and the arrow goes round and round and stops. The folder appears below the Live 8 Library. 

But when I remove the disk with the samples, the name of the folder is greyed out, and there's nothing in the folder. When I re-insert the disk, the name of the folder is black again.

It appears that Live is adding the name of the folder, but not adding actually copying the content to the Ableton Library. 

Any ideas, please ...

    If you want the sounds to be found by Live, you probably have to copy them to a location on your harddisk, and then tell Live where they are.
    What you are doing now, is simply pointing your browser to an external location. So yes, when you remove it, Live won't be able to find it.
