    You should be able to drag and drop.

    Failing that, I have my Mac HD mapped as a Network drive within windows.

    That's really weird that I can't drag and drop. Do I need to restart my computer? I just installed Parallels a few minutes ago.

    Read the Parallels help of setting up a shared folder. Then drag & drop to the shared folder in your active OS.

    It looks like a regular folder to OS X, but a network share to Windows.
