Can't seem to get separate media queries stylesheet to work

I've written a media rule. It works when it is placed at the bottom of my original stylesheet (css/tvguide.css) but doesn't seem to work at all when I transfer it to a separate file (css/media.css). In the 'how to build a website' video, the media rules are in a separate file, but I can't seem to replicate this, and not sure where I'm going wrong.

Here is my html head:

<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/normalize.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/tvguide.css">
    <link rel="stylsheet" href="css/media.css">
    <title>TV Guide</title>
  </head>

here is media.css :

@media screen and (min-width: 480px) {
  .content{
    background-color: green;
    }
.listwidth {
  display: inline-block;
  width: 40%;
  }
}

Hi, Mark. I might have a solution to your problem. The link tag for media.css, the 'rel' attribute seems to be missing an 'e' between in the word 'stylesheet'.

This is your code: <link rel="stylsheet" href="css/media.css"> Please add an 'e' between 'styl' and 'sheet'

I hope this was the solution to your problem! :)
