Flash memory card

Hello!

Could anyone please explain why when I am trying to copy files or erase filesystem to or from flash memory card the IOS doesn't allow do that:

Router#copy flash:1: slot0:

%Destination file system is read-only.

Router#erase slot0:

Erasing the slot0 filesystem will remove all files! Continue? [confirm]

%dev_open: PCMCIA Slot0 flash not writable

%Error erasing slot0: (Device is read-only)

The flash memory card I have is from Cisco Intel value series 200 24Mb memory card. And I was trying do that on 3640 router:

Re: Flash memory card

From your show version output, the router is ont seeing your PCMCIA flash, confirm if if you are using the right type for the router.
