Before I get a lot of replies about this, I have done a lot searching. I understand that Cisco only officially supports their CF cards. I understand that. I have two 2811 routers. One with and one without the Cisco CF cards. These are used in a lab environment, not in production. I purchased a 32Gb card from my local part store, reformatted it to FAT16, and was able to get it to work for a long time. Recently, I have tried to tftp the required files for CME and VoIP and it started to give me errors. I formatted the card, using the running, configured router, retftp'd the IOS file and it will not boot. I hot swapped the card (64mb) to the router, loaded the os, reformatted the 32Gb (yes fat16 only can use 2ishGb), and was able to tftp, show flash and dir flash: just fine. But the router will not load properly with that card install. I am just trying to figure out what I could of changed to make this work again. Yes, I know the easy answer is to buy an official Cisco CF, but I just want to figure out how i could make this work as is.
