Hi, im using an Acer Extensa 5220 and ive switched over to XP. The problem now is installing all the drivers.

I downloaded ALL the drivers from this link below:
click here

And most installed perfectly, however i cant seem to find the corresponding driver to the last 2:
click here

Im not sure if i was doing it right but i just looked for the corresponding name in my drivers folder and click setup.exe
click here

Is there a way for it to just search the entrire folder for the drivers it needs...?

Right click on the ethernet controller, update driver and browse to the drvers file, click ok.

Do the same for the mass storage controller.

Right click on the drive click properties

Click driver if its manufacturer by Microsoft delete it Windows should put a new driver there,

Sorry on next restart

It will only search in a subfolder, it wont allow me to select the entire "Drivers" folder.

It isnt by microsoft, it says Unkown.
exactly what is the Mass Storage Controller?

  mfletch 18:24 25 Mar 2009

I should imagine its for the hard drive

Just to add it may be for a external Mass storage device {external hard drive}

from here click here
can you see any drivers that could relate to "mass storage controller"

All others i have found in that folder.

  mfletch 18:49 25 Mar 2009

Ive just looked on my XP laptop and I have 3 unknown devices under Other devices

It just may be there is no mass storage device install so you dont need the drivers
