Can you not already do this? I haven't actually tried, so I'm not arguing, just surprised. I thought you already could do this.

Fair enough then. Like I said, I wasn't arguing, I just find it very surprising! I know you can load Live packs and things like that by dragging from the OS, but, also like I said, I've never tried dragging wavs etc (which I assume is what you want).
I'm guessing their argument would be that your entire computer and any external drives are accessible from the Browser, so there's no need.

What Windows and Live version do you use?

Also; what exactly are you trying to drop into Live (and where) ?

Reason I'm asking is because I've been using drag/drop from the Windows explorer for more than a year now.. In other words; this works fine with Live 8.
With kind regards,
