Connecting the device
The device must be connected with a USB cable to the PC for flashing.

Some devices have more than one USB port.
Look in the documentation of your device to see which USB port the device is connected to for flashing.

As a rule, the device has a button for switching the loading mode. The button can be accessed through a hole in the housing. When turning on the device or rebooting it, it is necessary to hold this button pressed for 1-2 seconds from the moment the USB cable (power) is connected.
There are other ways to switch to bootloader mode (see documentation for your device).
