Is there a "setup.exe" file in there? Maybe you downloaded a driver installer. If this is the case, just run the setup program to extract the actual driver files and install them in the right place automatically.

Sounds like the true 'driver' file isn't in that folder. Look for some kind of setup file in that folder.
