Can't install packs, please help.

Hello Forum. 


I have a probelm and i feel like i've tried anything, so i came to the conclusion that i'd better ask in here.. 


Whenever i have downloaded a pack from whatever homepage, i can't install the pack. When i try to the sounds are just grey. 

What i do: 

1. I download the pack 

2. Unzip it 

3 Go in to ableton live 9--> install pack --> find it in "downloads" --> press it and the sounds are just grey and can't be loaded into ableton.. 


Speccs on my Mac

Macintosh HD 
OS X version 10.8.5 
2.6 GHz Intel Core i%
8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 


Please help me, i really need some new samples because i just got ableton live. 


Kind regards Doktor Bo.

    Hey, to install the pack, try following these steps:

    1. Open Live

    2. Open the folder with packs (they have to be unzipped)

    3. Hold and drag the pack into live, it will automatically install it into Live.

    If this doesn't help, reply and I will create a video about it.
