It sounds to me like you need to first understand what flash memory is. I
don't know if there is a faq that describes this.

To answer that one question. Flash memory cannot just be reprogrammed, in
many/most instances you first need to erase the section of flash before you
can reprogram it. All the limitations are far too complex to answer in an
email like this though.
