On some of the newer Cisco routers (2800, 3800, etc..) they come with a external PCMCIA memory card. Of course only a Cisco branded PCMCIA memory card will work, but I've heard there's a command to turn off the feature that will allow virtually any PCMCIA card. It's some kind of support command.
I work for a retail company that extensively uses 2821 routers which also use PCMCIA flash cards. We were of the opinion, and told as much, that only Cisco certified cards could be used.
I dont know if there is a command to turn it on/off.
We have recently found out that other cards can be used as they are compatible for use. We use the Transcend cards from SanDisk and are in the process of upgrading the all of our routers from 128MB to 256MB.
So far, we have not had any problems with the new cards.
Best thing for you to do is to get your hands on a single card and try it out before deciding to purchase a bundle of the things.
