Issue with Copy and Paste from external source to applet.

I have a signed applet that I need to allow users to paste images into. I understand the Clipboard, Transferable, DataFlavor concepts and have been able to get something working.

I can past any image that I copy from within Internet Explorer, however, when I try to copy it from the desktop (Windows Explorer) the imageFlavor isn't supported.

OS = Windows 7
JRE is RAD JVM 1.5 (set for 1.4 compatibility)

When copied from the OS and pasted, this is the only supported DataFlavor...

When copied from within IE (right click, copy) and pasted I get these DataFlavors...

Is there a way to add x-java-image to the list of supported flavors to the clipboard? Preferably within my applet.

Thanks in advance.
