I’m aware. It’s a DAW. With a shitty browser that doesn’t allow for one of the most basic things that one could possibly ask of a browser within a DAW.
Can you do that in other DAWs then? I just tried it in Ableton 11 and it doesn't seem to work either.
Depends on how the file browser functions. It is just a view of a Database of items catalogued by the DAW or does it expose the root file system.
In Cubase, the MediaBay is a view into the MediaBay Database, so this doesn't work with Samplers like Battery, Komplete Kontrol and Kontakt (will do nothing, give a file not found error or load an empty sampler instance). Unironically, it will work with Steinberg instruments that integrate with Media Bay (as is common in other products and their browsers).
In Cakewalk, the Browser there is a view of the root file system, so drag and drop works from browser to Sampler VSTis. It functions the same as dragging and dropping from an instance of Windows File Explorer.
This will vary from DAW to DAW. It depends on what the items in the browser actually represent - actual files, or references to files catalogued into the browser database.
