I have an NM-1T3/E3 card installed in slot 3 of a 3845. The router sees the card using "show version" or "show inventory". However, I cannot configure the card. I have read that I need to enter "card type t3 3" in config mode. However, that command does not exist nor does "controller t3". Any help would be appreciated.

You cannot configure the card type because the NM is disabled. If there are no valid modules to configure with the card type command you will get the parser error. Can you remove the NM and reinsert it into the router? Once that is done give it a minute and see if the NM is recognized.The output should look like:
NM-1T3/E3 (clear/subrate) Port adapter, 1 port
Port adapter is analyzed
One the NM is analyzed you will be able to use the card type command and then the controller interfaces will be available. If the NM doesn't power up again can you try a different slot on the router?
