Upgrading Cisco Compact Flash Cards

I need to upgrade the compact flash cards on the existing routers in our environment. I have roughly 25 devices (both local and remote) that need to be upgraded from 128MB or 256MB to 512MB cards. I need the extra storage in order to have two version of IOS on the card. The cards will need to be bootable when I ship them out to our other offices.

Is this process as simple as dragging and dropping the files from one CF card to another in Windows while using two card readers? Or is there another way this needs to be done? I've searched around on various forums for a solution or guide without much luck. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

There is scant information about IOS other than it's not linux, not DOS, not Windows, and it uses FAT formatting.

Since the CF cards are bootable, it's not as simple as dragging and dropping the files.

Speculatively, it looks like a workable procedure might be:

1. Create one CF in the configuration that you want.
2. Test it at your location.
3. Duplicate that tested CF to as many as are required using a USB card reader/writer and a drive imaging tool such as PassMark's free ImageUSB.
4. Repeat the above for each different size of CF card.
