Hi, I have an ender 3, but after assembling, I tried to load files onto the sd card from the box, obj files   it shows up on every computer i plug it in to. but when I plug the sd card into the printer, nothing shows up except the default files the printer comes with which is the cat and the dog.

Please can someone help?

@ender3v2user Well, If the printer can read the default cat and dog files, that means the SD card and the sd card slot is fine. Please consider what is the difference between the file you added and the default file. 

For example, the format of your file. 

Or, are you sure that you choose the Ender 3v2 printer in Cura before slicing the model?

@ender3v2user  You can't directly print .OBJ files. You first have to transform them to Gcode files with slicer program like Cura for printer to understand what to print.
