    brd2odb Error translating input. Reply
    I looked for this error and everyone seems to address the issue by changing the artwork type to RS274Xand decimal places to 5.I also run dbdoctor and have 0 errors but when I try to translate I get:    

    *********** ERROR  12Nov2012.141047.467  5924  91.1 Update 1(38) Windows XPCadence Interface - File geoms_28381155.out has wrong header*********** ERROR INTERNAL 12Nov2012.141047.467  5924  91.1 Update 1(38) Windows XP(ind_list != ((void *)0) && ind_list->magic == 12121212) at D:\vSureSRC\s911\gen\gen_sort.c 1236

    Why is trying to read something from my D drive? Could this be the cause of it? I´m running the translator from within Allegro menu (file>export>odb++ inside)I´m on Allegro PCB Editor 15.5

    I'm having a similar problem when attempting to export ODB++ from .brd file.  It seems to break at some point and starts spitting out the error messages referring to D:\vSureSRC\ like the OP.  The last few lines of the log_brd2odb_x.txt are included below.  The fifth line is where this log diverges from other successful gererations of ODB++ files for our other boards.

    Something happened to my board file when my computer crashed due to a graphics card failure.  After DB doctoring after the crash everything appeared to work fine; constraint manager was fine, all components imported worked fine, and gerber generation went off without a problem.  However, now that I try to export an ODB++ file(s) the symbols folder within the ODB++ archive is empty and this is something our contract manufacturer needs.  I tried the suggestion of changing the artwork to RS274X and decimal places but to no avail ( we use this format so I actually moved it away and back to the RS274X settings)

     

    Did anyone ever get resolution on this?  Right now I'm attempting to place-replicate an entire board design from the newer failing brd file to an older file that still generates ODB++ correctly but it's not fast or perfect and we've already lost some time due to this.

     

    Thanks for any help
