Hi all!

I have a problem with official CF from cisco. One day I insert it into my PC card reader and format. Before that day the CF works perfectly but now the router say:

Flash card inserted in flash. Reading filesystem on the device...
Wait for the completion message before accessing device
Error reading flash

%Error show flash: (No such device)

and when i try to format say this.

yourname#format flash:
Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
Format operation will destroy all data in "flash:".  Continue? [confirm]
Enter volume ID (up to 64 chars)[default flash:]:
%Error formatting flash: (No such device)

Somebody know if its possible recover the flash?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dave,

Your CF could be faulty.  If it's a Cisco-badged CF then you need to RMA it.
