On my drupal site, I can do so as well, as an admininstrator. But for a regular authenticated user, I can't. Here's what regular users gets when they click on the upload media icon. Only access to gallery, not local files. Why?

Go to permissions settings page admin/people/permissions and search for the permission 'Import media files from the local filesystem'. Give this permission to all user roles that should be able to upload files from their local computer.
