DnD from file system into JTree

I have a JTree that has working drag and drop but I cannot figure out how to drag a file from the operation system and drop it into my JTree. My main problem is figuring out what type of data flavor it is. I think it is a "javaFileListFlavor" but when I "getTransferData(javaFileListFlavor)" and try to cast it into any Object, I get an "InvalidDnDOperationException:No drop current caught while getting Data." Any help would be appreciated.

It's hard to believe that no one has ever done this.
Any ideas?!!!
