I've also seen this on a links list where the first column has the little link icon. If that's the case copy and paste only the column containing the links themselves, as opposed to the whole grid.

Are you trying to drag values from a look up columns? I have seen this happen before when you are attempting to copy values from a column that is a look up to values in another list.
