Make sure you have a working data cable to connect your device to the PC. There are cables which are only for charging and do not transfer data.
The cable that i use is possibility to transfer data i guess.

sorry i m a bit confused about that may by there is somone how can help me?
thanks a lot,

Connect your FP4 to your computer. Swipe down from the top of the screen to see the white notification at the bottom and tap on it:

Now if your cable can transfer data, you should be able to choose “File Transfer” here:

If this option is not available, the cable might not be able to transfer data.
