I am attempting to do this with a Creality CR-10 V2, but when I plug in the USB cable and check the COMM port no new device shows up. It is like nothing is connected. The same thing happens when I plug it into a windows 10 computer as well. The printer is being powered by the connection though. Is there a way to check if the driver is installed correctly?

A possibly stooped question:
This is to let you plug the USB ISP into your Mac with the other end plugged into the Ender's motherboard, right ?
I am hoping to flash an Ender 3 Pro for a BLTouch
