Cannot Copy Folders from Pin Drive to Libraries

First and foremost I am Windows 7 challenged. I have an external pin drive with folders My Files, My Music and My Pictures. I tried to copy these folders and paste in My Libraries under Documents, Music and Pictures folders that exist on my laptop. For some reason it is not allowing me to do that. What am I missing?

Welcome to the Forum.

Libraries isn't a folder. It's a list of shortcuts to folders.
You have to open a folder to paste the folders from the Pen drive.
If you have a Documents under Library, double click on it. It will show the real folder. Paste on it.
