    Will a Catalyst 6000 series Flash card (MEM-C6K-FLC24M) work in a 3660
    router?

    Ive got a 3660 with 16MB onboard Flash and need to upgrade the IOS which is
    about 18MB.

    Ideally I'd like to load the new IOS on a PCMCIA Flash card. I have a chance
    to buy a 24MB Catalyst flash card but am not sure if it will work in the
    3660.

    Thanks!

    Don't know for sure, but Cisco had issues in the earlier days all platforms
    developed their own flash drivers. The systems mostly converged on ATA
    flash (which is also PC compatible) over the long haul, but you would need
    to have boot ROMs that recognized that type of flash.

    The short answer is that it is a crapshoot. The only way to tell is to try.
    It may even work with later revs of the boot ROMs.
