Default Upload errors

Even though I have programmed my BCD996P2 with PROSCAN many times, this morning I had eight (8) "Upload Errors" that I do not understand. The software told me they are "Talk Group Channel Error - 501". I have looked at each of the eight errors and for the life of me, cannot see anything that should have caused an error code. The talkgroup name is correct and doesn't exceed the space, the talkgroup number is correct, and I am WELL within the limits on each System, Group, etc.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in unraveling this mystery.

You will need to post the file you're trying to upload, and specify what version of ProScan you're using.

Default PROSCAN Errors

I have found my errors. It was incomplete systems, i.e., trunking systems with no Groups and/or Talkgroups. Not sure what is happening but the software seemed to have loaded systems/groups that were one way in the computer but once uploaded, there was something entirely different in the scanner. For example, the file was correct as I had built it. But once uploaded, the scanner - or the computer - had trunked systems with talkgroups from one system loaded as sites for an incorrect system. Too numerous instances of that and it really makes no sense whatsoever. I don't know whether to fault the software, my laptop, or the scanner.

Anyone ever dealt with anything like this?

I'm not sure what happened. I would try again using the upload option "Delete All Systems In The Scanner Before Uploading" If it fails again, power cycle and try again.

Upload errors are most likely caused by the scanner not accepting the new channel(or system, group, site) due to a scanner memory limitation. If uploading with option "Don't Delete Any Scanner Items Before Uploading", you could end up exceeding the memory limitation if done over and over again.
