This document describes how to install Cisco 2691, Cisco 3631, and Cisco 3700 CompactFlash memory
cards in Cisco modular routers which use Cisco 2691, Cisco 3631, or Cisco 3700 CompactFlash
memory. This document also contains procedures for formatting the CompactFlash cards with a Class B
Flash file system (low end file system) or a Class C Flash file system (similar to DOS), and it describes
how to perform file and directory operations in each file system. Some Cisco routers have an external
CompactFlash memory card that resides in a slot in the rear panel; some have an internal CompactFlash
memory card that mounts on a connector on the CPU/mainboard; and some have both. Cisco 2691,
Cisco 3631, and Cisco 3700 CompactFlash memory cards are available with 32, 64, or 128 MB of
memory.
Use this document with the Cisco 2600 Series, 3600 Series, and 3700 Series Regulatory Compliance and
Safety Information document, which shipped with your router. If you have questions or need help, refer
to the “Obtaining Documentation” section on page 31.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
CompactFlash memory cards are sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. ESD damage, which
can occur when electronic cards or components are handled improperly, results in complete or
intermittent failures.
Follow these guidelines to prevent ESD damage:
Caution
•
Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.
•
Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.
•
Place a removed CompactFlash memory card on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding bag. If
the card will be returned to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag.
•
Avoid contact between the card and clothing. The wrist strap protects the card from ESD voltages
on the body only; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.
•
Do not remove the wrist strap until the installation is complete.
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be
between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohms).
Tools and Equipment Needed
You need the following tools and equipment to remove and install CompactFlash memory cards:
•
ESD-preventive wrist strap
•
Antistatic bag or mat
•
Number 2 Phillips screwdriver or flat blade screwdriver (only for internally mounted CompactFlash
memory cards)
External CompactFlash Memory Card Installation and Removal
Complete the appropriate procedure below for installing or removing a CompactFlash memory card if
your Cisco router has an external CompactFlash memory card.
If you have questions or need assistance, see the “Obtaining Technical Assistance” section on page 32.
External CompactFlash memory-card slots are located as shown in Figure 1, Figure 2, and Figure 3.

Formatting Procedures for CompactFlash Memory Cards
Formatting Procedures for CompactFlash Memory Cards
The following sections describe formatting procedures for internal and external CompactFlash memory
cards.
Formatting Procedures
Cisco recommends that you erase (Class B) or format (Class C) new CompactFlash memory cards to
initialize them with either a Class B or Class C Flash file system. This ensures proper formatting and
enables the ROM monitor to recognize and boot the Flash.
The Class B Flash file system is also known as the low end file system (LEFS).
The Class C Flash file system is similar to the standard DOS file system.
Note
A CompactFlash memory card formatted with the standard DOS file system does not support booting
from the ROM monitor.
Determining the File System on a CompactFlash Memory Card
To determine the file system of an external CompactFlash memory card, enter the show slot0: all
command. To determine the file system of an internal CompactFlash memory card, enter the
show flash: all command.
•
If geometry and format information is not displayed, the card is formatted with a Class B Flash file
system.
•
If geometry and format information is displayed, the card is formatted with a Class C Flash file
system.
The following examples show outputs for Class B and Class C Flash file systems:

Delete files from CompactFlash memory
To delete a file from CompactFlash memory, enter the delete {flash: | slot0:} command, followed by
the squeeze {flash: | slot0:} command.
When a file is deleted in the Class B Flash file system, the memory space occupied by the deleted file is
not released until you enter the squeeze {flash: | slot0:} command. Although the memory space once
occupied by the deleted file remains, the deleted file cannot be recovered. To release the memory space
occupied by a deleted file, enter the squeeze {flash: | slot0:} command.
Note
The dir {flash: | slot0:} command does not show deleted files; the show {flash: | slot0:} command
shows all files, including any deleted files if the squeeze {flash: | slot0:} command has not been entered.
The following example shows output for deleting a Cisco IOS file from an external CompactFlash
memory card, and then releasing the memory space originally occupied by the file:
