Hi All

Just tried upgrading IOS on 2811 by putting CF card into reader on PC and copying IOS onto it.

PC reported CF needed formatting to use it so I formatted as FAT and copied IOS onto it.

Router boots up fine with new IOS image but a show flash command reports:

Router#show flash

%Error show flash: (No device available)

Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

Have you tried just entering "dir" at the prompt to see where it thinks your image is.

I used a different flash card (but did exactly the same procedure) but this one works! So I'm sticking with the non cisco CF.

Thanks anyway.
