    Hi , I ran into a problem while trying to install a new driver . I open device manager click to update driver , check the install from specific location but the wizard let's me only browse D./ ( disc ) . Can I change The D./ to C./ ? it is giving me a bit of a headache right now because I have the drivers only on the C./ drive so no disc . Thanks if anyone can guide me through this or has a solution .

    Hi , That's the point . I didn't do anything . The wizard only shows D./ . When I click browse I can point out where my file is stored ( C./ ) but when I click it the OK button turns grey meaning not available

    The folder has to contain a .inf file which is used by the installer to configure the driver installation. Otherwise the OK button stays grey.

    Does your folder have a .inf? If not then maybe what you downloaded is an application to install the driver or perhaps a compressed file which has to be decompressed into a folder first.

    It should show allavailable disks that windows sees because at this point it doesn't even know if there is a inf file on that disk. Just change manually to C:\ or setup a fake drive for D:\ by using a usb stick
