Could you specify the
version of Central Count you are running. It is odd that all four memory
cards seem to produce a bad checksum and the issue will be looked into.
Please attempt to narrow down your operation before a “BAD CHECKSUM” message
occurs if possible.
Juan is correct
however in that the memory card only holds little information. Four
parameters to be exact, which is the phone number, user name, password and
host IP address.

is a test that is done to verify the integrity of memory devices. There
are many ways to
checksum tests, but in keeping it simple what it means is that once any
information is written in to a memory device, the software counts all the
digital representation (ONE Bits) that represents the data. That total is
placed in a particular part of the memory device as a check sum. During
tests the memory device is recounted making sure that the Data stored and
recorded earlier (represented by the checksum) on the memory device is equal
to the checksum if finds now. If it matches, well no problem, if it
doesn’t then a check sum error will be declared.
possible culprits are the memory devices themselves (bad memory card or bad
batch of memory cards, or the memory card reader failure, or bad
making sure that power is shut off before inserting and removing AVOS memory
card to see if problem persists.
card holds IP address and password info for central count. Although
insignificant this is still data and it will be checked sum.

Subject: AVOS "BAD CHECKSUM"
Johnson County, Kansas had been receiving
a "BAD CHECKSUM" message intermitted on one of their 32mg AVOS cards. We
replaced all four of their AVOS 32mg cards with AVOS 128mg cards. Now
Kris is getting the "BAD CHECKSUM" message on all of the 128mg cards. As
I understand it, in using the AVOS in a central count environment with each
scanner connected to the internal network, the main function of the AVOS card
is to hold the IP address in memory, meaning that if the cards are not working
the worst that is happening is that the IP address has to be re-entered every
time want to transmit. Two questions:
1. What is causing the "BAD CHECKSUM"
message and how do we fix it?
2. Is the AVOS card doing anything other
than holding the IP address in a network connected central count
