Does the following error message mean anything to anyone?
(I don't belong to this mailing list as yet so please reply direct)

flashcard: erase failed, status 0xffff
and then I have to reboot

I have a DOC1000 with all the right patches to 2.4.9.
And the erase ioctl returns this.

I can read from it using dd.
But writes fail with similar results.
