Greyed out file name - not available? Why? (solved)

Post by Wompoo » Tue Apr 16, 2019 11:36 pm

I am trying to download and flash OpenTX in Companion in order to update the software in my new open source computer radio control transmitter.
I am following this tutorial:

https://oscarliang.com/flash-opentx-firmware-taranis/

The attached screenshots might illustrate the problem that I am having.
The first screenshot indicates that the file is in the opt folder.
The second shows that it is not available (in grey - not normal dark font).
The updated file does download, but then remains grey in the opt folder in the file manager.
Questions:
1. What does this mean? Has it not been downloaded fully? Or what?
2. What can I do to get it to be available for flashing the transmitter?

Jim.

That dialogue has as title "Select the folder replicating your SD structure". Emphasis, folder.
