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 https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/209773285 for the location of the Core Library. The 606 loop preview is Core Library/Ableton Folder Info/Previews/Drums/Kit-Core 606.adg.ogg
