"I just received the Pixel from Verizon Wireless. I want to copy music files from my Windows 10 laptop to the Pixel Music folder. I connected the Pixel to my laptop with the supplied USB cable. USB drivers are installed on the laptop as expected, and the phone displays in Windows File Explorer as expected. However, when I click on the Pixel icon, there are no folders or files displayed. It is simply empty. I tried copying the files to the space under the Pixel icon, but that did not work. What is the issue?"
