Russ Ragsdale just phoned me to tell me he had the same report failure problem when he loaded a Precinct MC to duplicate it and it happened when he went to print the label - he could also not run any reports on it after that - it was downloaded from 1-11-2 using 1.94US summary abo and is a new account - they have 1.94w rams.Thanks for the report Tari. In order to do anything about it we need to classify it as either:
1) an .abo file problem in which all download attempts using their 1.94 US Summary .abo results in a failure,
2) a firmware problem in which the vote center being downloaded always corrupts the .abo data,
3) a hardware problem in which a particular Accu-Vote or memory card is regularly corrupting data, or
4) a random data failure either in the download communications or in storing the data and is not generally reproducible.
Any ideas? My 1.94 US Summary .abo downloads fine.
REPORT FAILURE indicates either that the downloaded .abo file is not valid or has been corrupted. If this is an isolated case (likely), then we're looking at one more case of a random corruption. Otherwise it's something more interesting.
As with all memory card errors, I recommend recording:
If you want to send the memory card (or a copy) to me, I may be able to further classify the corruption. Otherwise I would be more interested in answers to the questions above for as many occurances as possible.
