Can you tell me what apple product you have?

Also, the track-pad should allow drag and drop. When you hold the main mouse-button down and then move your finger over the track-pad, does the system just not drag or is it another issue? Please give a few more details about your problem.

If you double-tap the track-pad and then hold and move, does drag work that way?

Couple of things to try.
1. Try changing your resolution and see if it makes a difference.
2. Try shutting down and taking the battery out. restart with only the power cord and no battery. See if that solves the issue. I have seen where a bad battery will cause trackpad issues.

I am not sure where you heard about a recall. I checked Apple's site and see no indication of a recall.
Your build number does not indicate anything about your Hardware. Build 9L31a indicates you are running system version 10.5.8 not your MacBook model.

Also... depending on your model, this may apply.
