unable to read file in player after crash; but there is data

Post by hdole » Mon Apr 17, 2006 8:22 am

Hi,

During the solar eclipse of March 29th, we (my students
and I) recorded data with a ADC-10 on an old PCs running
windows XP. We observed the phenomenon with a small
radiotelescope.

Unfortunately after a while, PicoRecorder froze. The file
seemed to be written on the disk, but we are unable to
see its content with PicoLogPlayer: nothing is displayed
on the graph, and no line appear in the spreadsheet.
However, there are data in the file (but not human
readable obviously).

We'd like to grab its content to OpenOffice Calc (or excel).

May I send you this file so you can extract all the data
from it ?

Thanks

plw to text converter written by a user [siongboon]:
