Drag-and-Drop not working with Virtual PC

I just installed the Virtual PC program and installed Windows XP. I read that I should be able to drag files from my host computer to the virtual computer with no problem, and vice versa. But it's not working that way. I try to drag files from my host to the VPC and I get the "access denied" symbol on my mouse when I drag it across the VPC window. Is there some setting that I have to turn on to allow it to do this? Thanks!
