There is usually a checkbox to include sub folders. What OS are you using?

I am using windows xp sp3

here is the exact process:

load windows
right click my computer - manage - device mananger
then right click item that needs driver and choose update driver
I choose "no not at this time" next
"install from list or specific location" next
I choose search removable media and "include this location in the search"
then browse to my drivers folder on flash drive

I don't see any option for selecting sub folders so i assumed it did it automatically but there are times i have to go deeper into other folders

not a big deal but it would be nice just to choose the one folder

thanks for any help
