Default Help loading waypoints from Homeport to Garmin 8215??

Okay guys, having a issue loading waypoints from Homeport to Garmin 8215. I am sure I am doing something wrong here and just wanted to see if there was something I'm doing clearly wrong. I have done the process like the OM instructs, however still having issue. Here is what I'm doing and see where I am wrong, please any advice.
1) I put a new SD card in card reader slot in the 8215, then turn the unit on. This is suppose to then make Homeport read the machine once put in the computer???

2) when I put the SD card in the computer and use Homeport, it doesn't list the device (8215) under devices to load. What have I done wrong already?

3) Then, if I download "my collection" to the SD card in Homeport and place the card in the Garmin 8215, it shows I have a card in the unit but does show having any waypoints on the card to merge from card to the 8215.

I have had several Garmin prior and never had issues with downloading waypoints from one to another however this is giving me fits right now. Where am I going wrong???? Any advice for obvious mistakes???

I know it's me but what am I doing wrong or backwards?
