Installing and Removing a CompactFlash Memory Card


Note A CompactFlash memory card can be installed in either the DISK 0 or DISK 1 slots on the Supervisor Engine 720 faceplate, except for the 512 MB CompactFlash memory card which must be installed in the DISK 1 slot.


Installing a CompactFlash Memory Card

To install a CompactFlash memory card, follow these steps:


Step 1 Hold the CompactFlash memory card with the connector end of the card toward the slot. (See Figure 1, view a.)

Step 2 Slide the CompactFlash memory card into the slot until the device completely seats in the connector at the back of the slot and the ejector button pops out toward you. (See Figure 1, view b.)


Caution Do not attempt to force the CompactFlash memory card fully into the slot or you could damage the connector pins. When correctly inserted, a portion of the device remains outside the slot.

Step 3 Format the CompactFlash memory card the first time that it is installed in the system. The formatting instructions are located in the software configuration guide for your system.
