It's asking you for the device ie. which flash to store the image on and you are typing in the image name. When it asks you for the device eg -

Flash device [bootflash]?

just hit return.

    In a 2948 (cat 4000 code) it is bootflash for the destination or source  as indicated in the prompt .  Flash is the general term used in IOS based  switches and routers for storage.
