As you may be aware, Experience Design is still in beta (and in Windows its lacking some features that already exists in the macOS)
Now, did you tried to set both XD and you folder windows side to side and drag the images into XD?
I know it may sound silly, but the extension of the images that are being used are the common ones? (.jpg, .jpeg, .png etc..)
When i try to drag and drop an image in my XD (on the macOS), i still have to click inside the art board i want it to go, otherwise it will stay in the cursor.
I really cant do much here unless we keep trying together.
Keep us updated with your progress!
I am aware that Experience Design is still in beta, so I already considered that it might be lacking some features that were already existing within macOS. But, here are some of the steps I've taken already:
- I set both XD and my folder side by side and attempted to drag the images from my folder into XD but I continue to receive the cancel symbol. (I even attempted to click the artboard and I still receive the same result).
- I am uploading jpg, and .png files.
- I can import the same images using the import option within XD, and then I can mask the images using mask with shape.
What browser are you using to drag the image in your XD application? There is a limitation with dragging images from Edge.
Does it work with IE/Firefox/Chrome?
I originally tried dragging images into XD from my finder or from the desktop. But I have also tested the drag and drop function for images within Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Edge, and IE 11. None of the following steps have worked, I continue to get the cancel symbol.
I know that some time ago, one of our users had a similar issue. The issue was resolved after he updated the drivers for his graphical card. Can you share more information about your system:
* Win10 version
* XD version

I tried on several machines with RS2, not exactly your configuration, and it works fine.
Does it work for you to drag an image from Explorer into the Store application Note?
Yes, it works for my to drag an image from Explorer into another application (For Example Microsoft Word). I have no issues dragging images into any application other than XD.
