We recently purchased two Cisco compatible 512 MB flash drives for our ASA. The drives work fine when first inserted into the ASA. We are able to load boot images, ASDM, CSD on the flash cards. However, when we change to boot statement to boot off of the image on disk1:, after a reboot the ASA can't see disk1: until it is removed and reinserted. Here's an output of the boot load:

.Device Manager image set, but unable to find disk1:/asdm-603.bin
*** Output from config line 1361, "asdm image disk1:/asdm-6..."
You see that the ASA complains that it cannot find disk1:. Once the ASA boots, the CF card in slot1 cannot be seen until it is removed and reinserted. We tried this with two different CF cards (from the same Cisco compatible manufacturer) and two different ASA's, with the same results.
