What format does the program accept as a drop? When trying to drop files as FileDrop the program shows crossed circle. Other programs don't have issues accepting dropped files from my file manager

Code
string dataFormat = DataFormats.FileDrop;
DataObject obj = new DataObject();
obj.SetFileDropList(path_to_file);
DragDrop.DoDragDrop(this, obj, DragDropEffects.All);

What version of MB are you using? (Help > About)
How was MB installed? (Installer, Portable, Store)

MB accepts just about any audio file. Preferences > General > File types.
So that begs the question - what file type are you dropping?

You also may not have permission to access the directory where you're dropping.
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 or 3.6 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Thanks for reply @phred; I've actually got it...
so Musicbee won't accept dropped mp3 file if I use

Code
DragDrop.DoDragDrop(this, obj, DragDropEffects.All);
or
Code
DragDrop.DoDragDrop(this, obj, DragDropEffects.Copy | DragDropEffects.Move);
regardless if in addition I hold ctrl/shift/alt

but it will accept
Code
DragDrop.DoDragDrop(this, obj, DragDropEffects.Copy);

I was afraid I'd have to deal with some complicated  memorystreams, so this is good.
Cheers
