You need to be more specific with your help questions. State whether you're using VB6 or .NET, not just what you want to do. It's real easy to do it in .NET:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.         'set the folder browser
  2.         Dim folderBrowser As New FolderBrowserDialog
  4.         'open the dialog and if the user presses OK...
  5.         If folderBrowser.ShowDialog And Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
  7.             'set the directory info for the selected folder
  8.             Dim dirInfo As New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(folderBrowser.SelectedPath)
  10.             'clear the listbox
  11.             ListBox1.Items.Clear()
  13.             'iterate through the files in the selected folder...
  14.             For i As Integer = 0 To dirInfo.GetFiles.Length - 1
  15.                 'if the extension is xml...
  16.                 If LCase(System.IO.Path.GetExtension(folderBrowser.SelectedPath & "\" & _
  17.                 dirInfo.GetFiles.GetValue(i))) = ".xml" Then
  18.                     'list them in the listbox
  19.                     ListBox1.Items.Add(dirInfo.GetFiles.GetValue(i))
  20.                 End If
  21.             Next
  22.         End If
I hope that's what you're looking for. Reply if it works or not.
