Problems restoring local instance in SQL Server 2008 R2 Express

http://serverfault.com – I have set up a local instance in SQL Server 2008 R2. I have a database (called GD_LOCAL_TC) that I need to restore so I can begin working in it (right now it's empty). When I right click on GD_LOCAL_TC --> TASKS --> Restore database, it will not let me navigate to the .bak file that I need to restore. It shows the C drive as well as folders, but will not show any of the files I need to highlight. Is this a problem with the program I am using, or am I missing something?! I don't know if this matters, but the .bak file is from SQL Server 2005. (HowTos)
