I have to use xmodem to recover IOS for switch 3750 because the current ios was lost.

when i tried to type: copy xmodem: flash:c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-35.SE5.bin

i got "Begin the Xmodem or Xmodem-1K transfer now...". So I began send file with xmodem, I got the error prompt "Xmodem operation was canceled by remote peer". I also could not finish the file transfer.

Please help me and give any advice, thx a lot!

The terminal is not ready to copy the file, either the flash isn't ready or there's not enough space, like Rawa said, from rommon type flash_init to get it ready.

And second: make sure there's enough space in flash, dir flash: to check free space.
