    Is this a software specific problem?
    Can you infact drag any file(s) at all?
    Have you looked at the "device manager" for an indication of conflicts?
    Try troubleshooting your mouse. Or Uninstall the driver, then reinstall. Worth trying.

    Thats not alot of information. Is your mouse optical or one that has the little ball on the bottom? Can you drag anything or just having problems with music?

    Having two drivers may not cause a conflict, but to make sure, may I suggest you unintall both drivers, then restart your pc. XP will detect new device, and assign a driver. Go to control panel and select printers and other hardware, select mouse. Here you'll see a small open window, with five tabs, assign the button functions first off, then check the rest to your prefferences.

    If for any reason the standard driver that XP assigns doesn't work, then intall your driver, at this point, then do a restart. Go through the mouse settings as described, and test your dragging abilities. Fingers crossed.
