I don't mean to ask a stupid question so forgive me... But did you try
"dir slot0:" to see if it works?  I realize you said "flash disk" but
just in case..;)

Here's a weird one.  I have a 7206 non-VXR running IOS 12.2.29.  The IOS
it boots is on a 256 MB CF card with a PCMCIA flash disk adapter.

The router boots successfully, and uses the expected image on the CF
card.  But when I do "dir disk0:", it says:

   Router#dir disk0:
   Directory of disk0:/

   No files in directory

   255787008 bytes total (0 bytes free)

If I yank and re-insert the PCMCIA-to-CF adapter, this happens:

   Aug  9 18:27:52: %FILESYS-5-DEV: PCMCIA flash card removed from slot0
   Aug  9 18:27:57: %FILESYS-5-DEV: PCMCIA flash card inserted into

And then "dir disk0" gives me the expected results
   Router#dir disk0:
   Directory of disk0:/

   [... list of files ...]

   255787008 bytes total (123207680 bytes free)

This began happening after I booted the router with a 12.4T image and
reverted back to 12.2.29.

Any ideas why this is happening, and how to fix it?  I don't mind
yanking the cards manually for my local routers, but even with a 4km
tongue it's a bit hard to push that eject button remotely.
