Adding files to the Serato DJ Library

 

The easiest way to load music from your computer into your library is by using the Files button.

1. Click on the FILES button to open the files panel. The left side of this window displays various locations on your computer hard drive (and external drives if you have one). Click on these locations to navigate your computer and find your music. By default, your music will usually be found in either “Music”(Mac) or “My Music”(Windows).

2. Once you have located your music, drag the folder or files you want to import onto the purple “All...” icon. This is located to the left of your screen at the top of the crates and playlist window. If you wish to import all of your music, just drag your whole music folder onto this icon. This will import any compatible file contained in this master folder from your hard drive into the Serato DJ Library.

TIP: You can also import by dragging files and folders directly from Windows Explorer (PC version) or Finder (Mac version) into the Serato DJ library. Loading a file to either deck from the files panel will automatically add it to your library.

TIP: Dragging a folder into the crates view will instantly create a crate.

Serato DJ doesn’t copy the music into the application, it references the music files where it currently lives on your hard drive. If you move your music files to a different location, Serato DJ will show these as missing files in your Library.
