Where exactly should I place my music in Media Player?

Hi Folks

After a fresh re-install of Win 7, I want to make sure I set up everything properly. I have a lot of my music on a USB drive, and I'm slightly confused as to where exactly I should drag and drop the music folders in Windows Media Player.

There are 3 songs with media player as you probably are aware. If I check the file location of them it is here:

Local Music-Users-Public-Public Music-Sample Music

However I notice they are also listed at

Libraries-Music-Public Music-Sample Music

yet what I thought would be the obvious location :

Libraries-Music-My Music

is actually empty! So where should I drag my music to?

thanks

Put all your music folders in your ' Libraries-Music-My Music ' the sample folders are just that sample music and I have no idea why Microsoft includes the sample folders.i just delete them.
