Flash file is too large to fit in flash memory 

WARNING: Default charset GBK not supported, using ISO-8859-1 instead 

 

 

the error when download application is:Flash file is too large to fit in flash memory 

 

why? before download ext_flash.flash ,the file is 200kbyte 

but after that ext_flash.flash is only 1kbyte 

 

when run all is ok. 

 

 

thank you
