Old DS-4700M with failed CF card

Hi Guys,

I have 2 DS-4700M's we want to use in our office for training purposes, however only one boots up.

I swapped the CF cards and i conclude that the CF card is the problem.

When i inserted both CF cards in a CF reader it tells me it fails.

Is this due to a UNIX/Linux format?

Thanks in advance,

Justin Rik

Are you sure the Switch is a 4700 ?

AFAIK, the 4700 coming with OnBoard embedded Flash Memory and not with CF.
