Hi i did a compression test today using the software that came with pico scope.Did the compression test and saved the file but it saved it as a pddata file and i cannot open it .Was hoping i could get to see the test.

.pddata files should open just like any other if you have the same or later version (that the file was created in) of Pico Diagnostics installed on the device you have the file saved on.

Either double click on the file in file manager or open Pico Diagnostics and click "File" then "load" select the file you want to open and click the "Open" tab and it should all work. :D

That sounds like a db error possibly the file corrupted on save? Have you saved any other files to test?

Best thing to do is to send the file to support@picotech.com along with the details of the PD software version you used and the OS / PC details. That way you help the process of making sure that the software is as good as it can be.

Hi
Was this test done in PicoScope 6 or Pico Diagnostics ?
Any file should just open when PicoScope is installed on a laptop or PC even without the scope plugged in.
Which version software are you using.
Thanks Phil R
