When a file is dragged and dropped onto Origin, the following rules are used:
Origin is shipped with many import filters for various file types. Note that not all filters shipped with Origin may be turned on for drag and drop support. You can configure this setting using the Import Filters Manager tool accessible from the Tools menu.
All import file types supported by Origin may also not be present in the File|Open dialog on the Files of Type drop-down. Note that for any system import filter, or for any custom filter you create, you can select that filter in the Import Filters Manager and click the Edit button to further customize and save the filter. The customization dialog has, among other things, a check box to enable display of that file type in the File|Open dialog.
