Hello everyone. I have a question about file compliance

I have designed several 3D files - they were saved to .stl, .obj .3ds and they won't load on Cura 4.4. The only file that shows up even under a new directory is the native file fy20jindu on my sd card. Can you tell me if there is a way to save my .st and other  files to the Cura format.  Can you please show me a directory or url that explains this software more thoroughly. I have many models that I have designed.

    Welcome @jenr8 ,
    Which menu option are you using to open the files? Easiest way is to drag and drop the files to load onto the cura window.

    If you have a file that we can test, feel free to attach it to a post.

    It sounds like the files on your SD card  are not .gcode files. Once you load the model in cura, click the button in the lower right to slice the model and then the button should change to "save to removable drive" click that and then put the SD card in your printer. It should work then.
