Problem Details:
When I drag some beatmaps into the osu! window, the cursor changes into a cross ("x"), not allowing me to import many beatmaps at once
posted
Instead of dragging it, why don't you just try to click the beatmap instead.

Try running osu! as an administrator.

I've been running it as admin since I can't write to osu.db

around 50 maps is not a good idea to click them one by one

This can happen when either osu! is being run as an administrator and windows explorer is not, or vice versa. I would suggest not running osu! as an administrator, but as you have said that causes other issues there are alternative ways of importing multiple maps at once. It is also possible to run/start explorer as an administrator.

To import multiple maps at once, move all of the beatmap files you want to import into your Songs directory and hit F5 on the song selection screen.

I'm also curious what issues are experience when you do not run osu! as an administrator.

osu! can't write to its database files, so I had to import new files again everytime i start osu

Not running osu! with admin right solved the problem and osu! seems to not making any issue about can't write to osu.db again. Thanks!
