Gooday all. I have a Sony Vaio laptop running a clean install of stock firmware and win7 64 bit. I am using Odin to flash a new rom to my Samsung SM-N910G phone. Iv'e done this before quite successfully with other phones,tablets etc. However this time I am having really frustrating difficulties. I have downloaded TWRP for the phone and I can see the file clearly in my docs. I take note of the file path. When I open Odin and click the ap button, I should be able to see the downloaded file, select it and press go. Trouble is I cant see the file in the noted location, or anywhere else for that matter. I know this is not an Odin problem, it's something to do with how my windows 7 is presenting the files. I had a similar problem quite a while back, talking years not months here, but don't remember what the fix was. Any help most gratefully accepted.

The only thing that comes to my mind straight off is that some flashing utilities recognize capitalization in filenames, whereas Windows may disregard capitalization. Something to try is copy the file to your user folder and re-name it to an interim name. Go to a command prompt, which will open in that folder,  and rename the file to the correct name using all upper case. See if Odin sees that file.

 

If unfamiliar with Command Line re-naming, type:

 

REN interim.name CORRECT.NAME
