firmware- small set of instruction (soft written of ur drive) that tells ur drive to do all activites and like bios for ur mobo it is bios for drive

flashing-updating or writing ur firmware.(common name for updating firmware and BIOS )

My 2 GB sandisk flash drive has been lying dead for months now. Whenever i connect it to my PC or laptop, It shows a message that the device is not recognized. I would like to ask and gain some knowledge before i head start and try. Is flashing the solution?
