I keep trying to paste a picture in my mask on a layer, I alt click into the mask and try to put the picture in but it wont let me paste. If i drag the image in it just opens it in a new layer

Are you sure there is content in the Clipboard? 
Could you please post a screenshot with Layers and Channels Panel and the Edit Menu visible?

It's working fine for me here. What OS are you working on? What version of Photoshop? Is there anything special about your document? (Color space, bit depth, etc)
