Flash memory for cisco

We want to bump the routers flash memory from 32M to 64M in cisco 1841. We have 32M flash with us, and router already has 32M... do we need a new 64 SD Flash compact memory or just inserting 32M would do the trick?

According to what I see, the 1841 uses a single external compact flash memory card.  So you would need to replace that card with a larger card.  This is coming from a Q&A page covering the 1841 router on Cisco's web site.  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps5853/prod_qas0900aecd80181208.html

I have an 1811 at my disposal and it's the same way.

You can buy any CompactFlash-card on the street and put it in, and replace the existing 32Mb. I doubt though that you will find any 64Mb CF-card on market. I have put 2Gb CF-cards in my 1800-series routers, without any problem.

Just take the old CF out, put it in any computer, select "show hidden files", copy the entire content of the old CF-card to your computer, and then paste it back on the new CF-card.

All 1800:s are the same.
