Outlook 2010 - How to copy messages from flash drive and place into INBOX

I just tried dragging a bunch of MSG files from my flash drive to my inbox and it didn't work.  An error box flashed saying something about the server disconnected (it wasn't).

There must be another way of doing this.  I'm following the instructions for this learning guide and it says "copy the messages from the flash drive folder into the inbox."

Just to verify, this was the method you used....
