Re: wrong firmware

What OS are you using?  Are the files shown accessible?  If so back them up as soon as you can.  How did the drive get formatted to NTFS?  Is the drive partitioned?

Re: wrong firmware

I'm using Windows 7 32bit
I'm can use the flash drive now, and I can format it to any file system I want, I can put files on it and delete them when ever I want.
My problem is, I need official suitable firmware for my 32 GB flash drive. Because It shows it's capacity is 8.08 GB, even if use partition program.
Sorry I can't explain very well, my English now that good.

Your English is fine. 

 

I don't recommend journelling type drive formats for flash drives.  The extra IO makes them slower and can wear them out faster.  If you use the drive for large files exFAT is a better choice.

 

Nothing in your original posting indicates your flash drive is a SanDisk drive.

Maybe you should talk to the source of the firmware you downloaded to see if they can help.  What was the name of the firmware you downloaded?

Re: wrong firmware

"Nothing in your original posting indicates your flash drive is a SanDisk drive." because the the original firmware is crashed, and I used Unofficial firmware for my flash drive, I couldn't find firmware for my 32GB flash drive.
I downloaded the firmware from here :

Re: wrong firmware

At this point all I can say is see if you can find some unoffical 32 GB firmware.

 

Or buy a new drive.
