cannot format usb flash drive from brand new 2911 either slot 0 or slot 1

Hi All,

I tried to copy my conf file to a USBflash drive but I cannot initialize the USBflash drive.

It asks me to format the USBflash, but when I say "yes" it gives an error.

Feb 21 11:18:40.799: %USBFLASH-5-CHANGE: usbflash1 has been inserted!

Feb 21 11:19:00.803: %USBFLASH-4-FORMAT: usbflash1 contains unexpected values in partition table or boot sector.  Device needs formatting before use!

Wrong forum, post in "WAN and routing-". You can move your posting with the Actions panel on the right.

Not all USB flash drives are supported by Cisco appliances.    You may need to find another brand.

No, Cisco will NOT publish a list of "compatible" 3rd party USB due to financial reason.  (Translation:  Are you nut$?  We make lot$ of ca$h selling 2Gb U$B $tick$ for x10 the price in the market.)

 

Go to your favorite electronics shop and buy three different varieties from three different manufacturer.  Return the ones that don't work.
