I must admit I am not very familiar with QDirModel, but why not use os.walk?

 #top would be the root directory you are begining your search at.
  def _walkDirPath(self, top):
        for dirpath, dirnames, filenames in os.walk(top):
            for name in filenames:
                # yields: c:\mydata\myfile.exe
                yield os.path.join(dirpath, name), name
