Note
•
16-MB MEM-C6K-FLC16M
•
24-MB MEM-C6K-FLC24M
•
64-MB MEM-C6K-FLC64M
•
MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M
The 16-MB MEM-C6K-FLC16M and 24-MB MEM-C6K-FLC24M linear Flash PC cards are formatted
for the Catalyst 6500 series supervisor engines and are ready to use.
The MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M and 64-MB MEM-C6K-FLC64M Flash PC cards are not formatted. You
must format these cards (See Table 1 on page 7 Commands for Using and Managing Flash DevicesTable 1for
a description of the format command.) When you enter the dir disk0: or dir slot0: commands, an
unformatted Flash PC card returns a “bad device block info” or “invalid magic number” error message.
Note

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage
Follow these guidelines to prevent electrostatic discharge (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 the ESD connector on the switch.
•
Place a removed Flash PC 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 only protects the card from ESD
voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be
between 1 and 10 megohms.
Installing and Removing a Flash PC Card
Before you install a Flash PC card, verify that the card’s write-protect switch is off. When the card is
oriented with the printing side up and the edge connector end away from you, the write-protect switch
is located on the front edge of the card, as shown in Figure 2.
Note
Not all Flash PC cards have the write-protect switch.

To install and remove a Flash PC card (see Figure 3), perform these steps:
Note
You can insert and remove the Flash PC card with the power on.
Step 1
Connect an ESD-preventive strap to the ESD connector on the switch.
Step 2
Face the front panel of the switch, and hold the Flash PC card with the connector end toward the slot, as
shown in Figure 3a.
Step 3
Insert the card into the slot until it completely seats in the connector at the back of the slot and the eject
button pops out toward you, as shown in Figure 3b.
Note
The card does not insert all the way inside the slot; a portion of the card remains outside the slot.
Do not attempt to force the card past this point.
Step 4
To eject a Flash PC card, press the ejector button until the card is free of the connector at the back of the
slot, as shown in Figure 3c.
Step 5
Remove the card from the slot and place it in an antistatic bag.

service call.
Submitting a Service Request
Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3
and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require
product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides
recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service
request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest
For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone.
(S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.)
Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business
operations running smoothly.
To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:
Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447
For a complete list of Cisco TAC contacts, go to this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/contacts
Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You
and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco
will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
