Unhappy Tried everything prs-505 wont flash

I copy all the files to an SD card and all I get is the spinning hour glass then nothing with no menu to update or flash the firmware. I have read everywhere, am I missing some critical step?

I have tried both card slots, but like a broken Chuck Bartowski.... IT WON'T FLASH! please help....

that is all

Check SD card for errors (chkdsk /f <drive letter> or reformat it.
Spinning hour glass normally means it is scanning the content of the card. Do you have many files there?
