Problem formatting 64m ATA Flash cards on 6500 Sup2/MSFC2

I'm trying to format the 64 meg cards I have in my Sup2 but it's not working. I'm issuing the "format slot0:" command and it returns with:

C6509-EEC173_1-CORE1#format slot0:

Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]

Format operation will destroy all data in "slot0:". Continue? [confirm]

Enter volume ID (up to 64 chars)[default slot0]: C6509-EEC173_1-CORE1

%Error formatting slot0 (Unspecified error)

From what I've read it says this card is supported and I'm running the required ROMMON software release 7.1(1).

Any ideas?

Hi,

As pointed out by Glen:

64-MB ATA Flash PC card (MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M=)—Only supported on Supervisor Engine 2. The device name is disk0: and the card requires ROMMON version 7.1(1) and later releases.

Also, I think Either you are running IOS or in MSFC when you are running this command (suggdested by the command). In either of the case you have to use sup-disk0: to format it.
