I am trying to erase flash on my 2811 but get the error below. I am not sure what the next step would be since I haven't seen this once before.

Thanks in advance.

RT02#erase flash:

Erasing the flash filesystem will remove all files! Continue? [confirm]

Current DOS File System flash card in flash: will be formatted into Low End File

System flash card! Continue? [confirm]

%Error erasing flash: (Invalid DOS media or no media in slot)

I suspect that you might need to do a "format flash:" instead. This should set the filesystem correctly allowing you to use the flash on the router.
