Re: PCMCIA Flash Card

technically, yes you can purchase 3rd party PCMCIA flash.

i've heard of issues getting some 3rd party flash formatted and usuable in the cisco routers.

(some have stated they had to format with a flash card reader; others stated they could not get it to work at all; while others stated it works fine for them)

for the cost savings i think it is worth trying.

the maximum depends on the switch model. 1gb is possible in some models like the 6500 sup32/720 for example. (same with the msfc2a)
