    I believe you will need to save them to Google Drive and then you will be able to use them on CloudReady.

    What is the make and exact model of your device?

    In the files app select all files from the USB do a copy and then paste them into a new folder that you have created on the hard drive called music......BAM!!!!

    Perhaps another confused user, like in the thread below?

    Colin Bell The sections at the top left (recent, images, audio, etc.) are just categorizations of files for quick access. The actual folder or directory for local files are in 'My files,' so copy the files from your memory stick and paste them into the 'My files' section of the file manager. Also, just a reminder, using local storage for long-term on Chrome OS / CloudReady is generally NOT a good idea. Whatever files you're moving, be sure to keep backups or better yet just copy them to your Google Drive which is integrated in the files app.

    Thank you. I have successfully transformed my old dell into something quite useful and fast. I bought a new dell before I discovered cloud ready and I am about to do the same for a neighbour who has a useless laptop.

    I also appreciate the comment about google drive which is something I have not used and also solves my problem to a certain extent. I can copy and paste there from the memory stick and play stuff from there. I assume now I can do music ,videos and pictures. thank you

    apologies to Tony. I have just created a Music File as he suggested and copy and pasted a track in there and it has played. I think I may send my new dell back
