Hi,
Yes the Qgis browser is just a file browser.  You need to work with Qgis.  The 
first thing you need to know is the CRS of the file.  Make sure that in your 
setting/options/CRS, you select "prompt for CRS".  Open the file and try to 
find the correct CRS.  It my help to open a background file to figure it out.  
Also, turn off "on the fly CRS" for now.

If you have the wrong CRS, you can right click on the layer and set layer CRS.  
That will not reproject it.  But it will change its position. Then click zoom 
to layer and see if it's the right place.
