How to create and add driver component to Microsoft Windows Embedded Target Designer

I am working on Microsoft Windows XPe and trying to build an XPe image for Dell optiplex 360 machine.
I've generated the devices.pmq file from the target machine and created a component for it as well and then added it to the component designer manger database. That works fine.
And now i want to create the component designer for Graphics card driver, Lan card driver and audio driver.
First of all when i try to create audio drvier component and try to import inf file, there are 4 inf files and i am not sure which one i've to import. Anyhow i've imported one of the inf files and then created the repository and source path for the files have also been set after saving the component i've imported this into database manager and when i opened up the target designer to add this component into my target machine image build. but i cant find the component name in components area. and if i open up the component designer there all the component icons are grayed out in left panel, means they are not colored blue! dont know why.
Any help how can i create component for the drivers and why even after adding to database manager components are not visible in target designer.

Before importing the component into the component database you have to release the component and save it.

I did some research myself and found that from devices.pmq file get the exact name of driver and search this name in drivers inf files and import the inf file that contains driver name.
