Cisco Router 2801 cant read image on flash card

Hi,

I have a problem with our Cisco 2801. It boots directly into ROMMON mode.
This is how it looks like.

I assume the problem is with the flash card. Is there a way I can test the card because I dont know if the image on the flash is corrupted or maybe the flash is dead?

HI,
It is readble on PC, if you have a CF card reader!

We don't have a CF card reader for PC. I guess this is the only way to test it? We also dont have another 2801 router to test the card....

I want to download the IOS rommon software from cisco site, but you need to have a have a valid Technical Support Services Agreement. Can I download this from other site? I have tried google it but no luck. Or can someone email it to me?
