Are you using the one that has Windows XP Mode? If you are, you can't drag files from your desktop to virtual machine. Drag-and-drop file sharing between your desktop and virtual machine was removed. If you are using this version, look at the screenshot. You have to browse your HDD in the virtual machine. If you're using an older version, I can't help you.

Here's how it works:



In this video, I open my host machine's D: drive, where I have the user folders. I then open my own documents folder (D:\Users\Kari\Documents), drag a file from there to XP Mode's desktop, and open it then on XP Mode.

Couldn't be easier.

Screenshot in your previous post clearly shows the drives of your host on XP Mode?
