3600 Series Routers PCMCIA slots, how to read!

Hi,

Have some 3600's that I will be replacing the FLASH chips on and want to use the PCMCIA slots to copy the IOS back over, however I receive the following error from show version;

%Error: No PCMCIA Slot0 flash chip information available

I purchased a standard, non Cisco, cradle and 32MB chip, the router acknowledges that it has been inserted but I cannot get it to read properly!

Any ideas>

Please check the following URL.

You will find that the 3600 supports 20Mb flash cards, not more. Your flashcard is too large for the system.

Thanks for your reply Leo,

However,

I have seen this page before and it says that the flash pcmcia cards can be between 2 - 40MB (3640 & 3660)

Where does it mention the 20MB limit?

Am I reading this incorrecty??

Re: 3600 Series Routers PCMCIA slots, how to read!

The TOTAL amount of flash on flash cards is 40Mb.

That's 2 times 20M.

The fastest way to show this is the following reference: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps274/prod_module_install_config_guide09186a008007ce2d.html#wp40257

This is about flash cards in 3600 routers. The product descriptions are for cards of 4, 8, 16 or 20M in size (MEM3600-20FC=)

As you will notice , 32M is not mentioned.
