    Did you install the drivers?
    Is the phone in downloading mode?
    Are you using a USB cord that is able to transfer data? (some only charge)
    Did you try a different is port?
    Are you using a USB hub?(don't)

    Yes all drivers were installed.
    Phone said downloading.
    Ahh. It may be the USB cord.
    Did not try other port.
    No hub used.
    I have a macbook, so I used a friend's computer. I will try all suggestions when he comes back next week. Thanks so much for assistance. Something will hopefully work
    I recall I tried to use FA19, perhaps I should have tried another, was not clear on how to pick one.
