Ws-C3550-24-Emi memory upgradable?

i have a Ws-C3550-24-Emi switch and i need to upgrade its flash memory to 32Mb. I couldn't find any documents in cisco website about the memory upgrade guideline. Does anyone know if i can upgrade this switch to 32Mb? If so, what's the max of memory i can upgrade? and the part number for this type of memory?

Thanks

I don't think the flash can be upgraded.  The latest image on the CCO requires only 4MB flash.  The image for these switches are not large enough to require an upgrade.

Question was regarding 3550 instead of 3500XL (if there is such a model anyway). 3550 is a fixed config switch, already end of life, I believe the flash chip is soldered to the motherboard, so it would be very difficult (difficult is a polite word for impossible) to replace it.

  Think you would have a hard time finding anything like that , that switch is EOL is no longer supported .

It's just a Ws-C3550-24-Emi switch. The reason i need more flash memory because we put alot of configuration/ACL and the IOS that require for my enviropment already took up 11Mb.

Like everyone said here, i think its not worth for putting money and effort for this EOL item.

Thanks for the information!!!
