Default Garmin 4208 wont upoad g2Vision

Updated the software in the 4208 to Version 7.7 and all is good. Insert the micro SD card (Garmin g2 Vision VUSO1OR into the unit and the screen changes to recognize the inserted card showing the correct name of the chart,etc. Toggle menu choices to "manage card" and then hit either "Replace from card" or "merge from card" and the screen changes to a blank screen that says "File Name" and no file name is shown . It apprears I should be able to page up or down here to click on the file name and the upload would start. Nothing there and nothing happens. After 10 seconds or so it resets itself to the Garmin opening screen shot when you initially turn it on.

What am I doing wrong and any tips much appreciated!

The g2 vision data is usually read directly from the card, and displayed on the chart plotter. They are not uploaded to the chart plotters memory.
