7206VXR CF memory - won't format?!?

Recently ordered Cisco labeled MEM-NPE-G1-FLD256 for our 7206VXR. Front of the card says 16-2775-03. Everything I've found online shows the cards with 16-2768-01. Wondering if the vendor sent the wrong card?

 

I put the card in to format it and it wont. I get the following:

xxx-rtr1#format disk2:
Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
Format operation will destroy all data in "disk2:".  Continue? [confirm]

Primary Partition created...Size 814 MB
Extended Partition created...Size 458752 MB

Drive communication & 1st Sector Write OK...

Extended Partition entry 1 created...Size 458752 MB
%Error formatting disk2: (Format failure - First sector write)

 

Log file shows:

pr 15 13:51:54.895 PDT: %FILESYS-5-DEV: PCMCIA flash card removed from disk2
Apr 15 13:52:17.027 PDT: %FILESYS-5-DEV: PCMCIA flash card inserted into disk2

Try the delete and squeeze

Try the delete and squeeze commands before formatting it, if not then you may have a bad PCMCIA card.

Thanks Reza will try that.

Here's an interesting situation though, I've got two identical 7206VXR's (both using an NPE-G1). One is running 15.0(1)M9, the other is running 12.4(22)T5. The router running the 15.0 train will format the CF card no problem, but the router running the 12.4 train will not. Weird...

It is weird, but then again

It is weird, but then again it is Cisco. Every version of IOS can have different feature sets.

It could also be that 15.0 train supports more disk formats then 12.4 does.

Unfortunately, when it comes to IOS, there is no one size fits all sad
