It seems to me based upon what you've explained below.. that you are either on the windows desktop.. or in the explorer. Is this the case? If so.. I've never used the middle button although perhaps that's possible.. I'd suggest using the left click button to click-and-hold to drag the drawing over. Drag it over to an icon which represents the application you are using.... in this case Autocad. That should get your file to open.

The dragging is not really dragging, it sounds to me that it was just activating the pan function which has been common on autocad since 2000 or something. It seems to me that he messed with a setting or his computer mouse settings might be screwy, as every out of the box install of autocad i have done since version 2000 has had that feature turned on. but i could be wrong too...
