Help! Why can't I import my 3D Warehouse models?

Hello, I’m a total noobie to Sketchup. When I import models from the 3D warehouse directly into my project…it works fine…no problems and the models show up. I had saved a few models to my hard drive to use at a later time, and those models I can’t seem to figure out how to import them into the project. when I click import,and go to retrieve them from their selected folder they don’t even show up to be selected. How can I get my saved models into my project? I didn’t change their file names or anything. They are the same as they were on 3D warehouse so I don’t understand what the issue is on getting them into my project. Hope yall can help me out. Thank you for your time.

You can also import into either a new or existing model - just make sure to select the correct file type SketchUp Files (*.skp) to import. You can also import images and other types of CAD files, and one of those may have been the default choice when you opened the File/Import dialogue.

Here’s what the selection looks like on a Mac:
