11.x iMPACT - "ERROR:iMPACT - '1': The Block Table information currently in the PROM device"

Description

When I program Cascaded Platform Flash XCFxxP PROMs, errors similar to the following occur in iMPACT:

"1': Putting device in ISP mode...done.

done.

done.

'1': Putting device in ISP mode...done.

'1': Putting device in ISP mode...done.

ERROR:iMPACT - '1': The Block Table information currently in the PROM device is inconsistent with the information in the specified CFI file. This may occur after changing existing revisions or after adding additional revisions to a programmed PROM. Please erase the entire PROM first and then program the device with the new data."

Solution

The errors appear under the following conditions:

- Programming 2 cascading XCFPs

- Compression is used for the programming files

- Verify is selected in the programming properties page

To work around this issue, uncheck "verify" in the programming properties page.
