I bought a 20MB PCMCIA Linear Flash card to use with Cisco R&S (3600, 4500, 5500, 6500 etc). I'd like to be able to copy files from my laptop directly on to the PCMCIA card and then just use it in the Routers and Switches, rather than TFTPing of images.
I can format the card and use it with Cisco devices no problem, but when I stick it into my Laptop (WinXP) it pops up asking for a driver for INTEL S2E20SW. Windows XP cannot find the driver. I tried setting it up manually as PCMCIA Centenial Technology PCMCIA Memory card. That worked, but all I get is a drive letter that cannot be accessed. Linux does not see at as well :(
Does anyone know how to access Cisco formatted Flash devices in Windows? In theory, even if I get the driver to work, Windows will not be able to read the RAW partition. I think it only reads FAT, FAT32 and NTFS. Let me know if anyone tried working with cisco flash cards (older File Systems, non-FAT) in Windows or Linux. Thanks.
