I have downloaded firmware from website and copied to USB flash, but I just can enter the recovery mode and the screen shows "insert flash drive", then I changed a flash but it same. The controller is KIPR Link. And the firmware is 1.9.5. What should I do.

Please don't post your question in 2 places. I deleted the other one. If the firmware the Link is already running is 1.9.5, you are on the latest version and you should NOT downgrade due to a fire hazard. Be sure the flash drive is inserted into the Link when you power it on. Also, try both USB ports. Are you able to use a flash drive for program downloading on your Link? If the USB ports are not responding there either, contact KIPR about a defective Link.
