Drag and drop won't work from a read-only media, foobar2000 seems to not support that feature yet

Hi. I have some burned DVD-Rs with music and I just can't drag and drop files or folders from the Windows Explorer to the foobar default playlist. The player refuses to add the files or folders and will show me that circle with a slash, meaning "prohibited".

I'm guessing this is a problem with read-only media such as burned DVD-Rs, because foobar won't behave like that with my USB drives.

The only way to play the files burned to DVD-Rs is from the options "add files/folders", which takes more time and is less user-friendly.

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I wish I could drag and drop files or folders from my DVD-Rs using the Windows Explorer. I've been used to doing that for years with Windows Media Player and Winamp.

Has this issue already been addressed?

I'm using XP SP2 x86 and 7 x64 with latest foobar release and am having the same results in both OSs.

Thanks for your time and work and congratulations for this great program.
