VLAN Database problems on 3825 w/ NM-16ESW

We have a 3825 ISR with a NM-16ESW etherswitch module.  When attempting to create vlans or modify vtp operations we get the following error:

%  not enough space on flash to store vlan database.  trying squeeze...

%  error squeezing flash - (operation not supported on this file)

Error on database apply 40: NV storage failure

I have experienced these errors plenty in the past with Dynamips using 3745's and the same network module.  Usually I have re-formated the flash and the problem was resolved.  Re-formanting the flash in this situation has not helped, nor has changing the default location for the vlan.dat file.  Please see the "show diag", "show version", and "dir flash:" output in the attached file for system specifics.

All help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks to everyone that will take the time to read through this message.

After formatting your flash, did you also squeeze it?

Also this happens only when you have the NM-16ESW etherswitch module installed?

I see you have planty space in your flash.

If squeezing does not help and this happens regardless of the NM-16ESW card then you may have a bad flash card.
