>> When pasting or inserting a block into a drawing the subject disappears
What is "subject" for you? What geometry-type do you mean when speaking about disappeared subject?
Have you verified layer-settings? E.g. if you copy a line on layer A into a drawing where layer A is frozen that may look like "disappearing".

We have Autocad MEP 2012 and have the same problem. I'll have 2 drawings open. Copy with base point in one drawing. Switch to the second drawing. Paste. Acts like it works but nothing is there. After shutting down autocad and restarting and do the same thing again it works but only 2 or 3 times before it does not paste again. Then shut down Autocad again and repeat.
I've purged, checked layers and even checked blocks with same names but nothing seams to work. I've had this problem for several months, a co-worker started to experience it last month and now my boss (who also does a lot of drafting) is now experiencing it as well. It's like a virus within a drawing maybe?
I am having the same problem with copy and paste in AutoCad 13. Also inserting a block it will act like it is going to insert and you can even see the block but as soon as you hit enter it disappears. Almost like drawing has limit to amount of blocks or copy and paste it can do on a single drawing. This has been very frustrating! never had this problem on any other versions of AutoCad. The last job I did I had to xref in my blocks of simple hanger details.
Love to learn of a variable setting or some easy fix to this.
Is everyone sure all layers are thawed/on and visible, and that there is no identical duplicate block already defined in the destination file? 99% of the time, that's all it is. You can test this by immediately opening a new empty blank file and pasting there, if it appears that's the answer.
Otherwise, grab a Windows Clipboard viewer (copy/paste is a Windows function, not an AutoCAD one) and see if your content is actually there: "acting like it's about to insert" means nothing really since your clipboard is likely populated (restarting the PC does clear the cache BTW, maybe why it gets fixed).
