PCMCIA memory card

I'm trying to install a PCMCIA flash card on my Cisco 5530 (Supervisor III)

According to this page:

It I need a "filesystem class C".

Now, can anybody explain me what's the Cisco definition of filesystem?

My unserstanding as ex-sysadmin is that, indipendently from the media, you can format it with different filesystem.

e.g. Windows XP can format the same Hard Disk with FAT16 or FAT32 or NTFS.

Linux with ext2 or ext 3 or many others

On this document I understand that the filesystem for Cisco it's rather a CARD type.

I'm very confused

Thanks to read


Re: PCMCIA memory card


AFAIK there are different file systems being used which basically differs based on the kinda hardware being deployed.

The main difference in different file system is basically the type of commands being supported like erase,delete,squeeze etc.,

in some filesystems you would be prompted to use both delete and squeeze to remove the files.

Delete will simply mark the files for removing but wont remove it .

but in some filesystesm you are required to use only the delete command to remove the files.

for more clarity and info would suggest to check this link out ...
