how to use the .adg drum files on Ableton Live 9 Lite?

Hi there, kind of a noob question....when I open Ableton Live 9 Lite I have in "Categories" (Browser window) the option "Drums". In there, there are several .adg files, like Kit-Core606.adg, and others.

I can hear the drum pattern (if I click the small headphones at the bottom of the Browser window) but am not able to listen to it after I drag it to my Live Set, nor can I record/play it into a track ... Any help on what I need to do??

    The drum kit preview loop can't be accessed easily from Ableton's browser, so you'll have to find it using your OS's file browser. See for the location of the Core Library. The 606 loop preview is Core Library/Ableton Folder Info/Previews/Drums/Kit-Core 606.adg.ogg
