RE: Pollbook "Please Insert Election Media"

You can't load the contents of a 4.x PC card onto 3.x.  They aren't the same (note the different files edb, xtr).  If you want to create cards for loading onto the spyrus, you need to download the vcenter(s) to 3.x poll book and create them there.
Just to get you ahead of the curve a little, Mike Brown reported to me that once he went through this exercise, he couldn't actually get the 3.x smart cards to work with the 4.x ballot station.  Same cards did work with 3.x ballot station, so it looks like there is a problem with the compatibility stuff on 4.x ballot station.  He's been on the road, but said he'd submit the bugtrack once he got back.  You might as well confirm the finding (and submit it yourself if you want), but I thought I'd give you a heads up since you'll likely see the same thing.

Subject: Pollbook "Please Insert Election Media"

Transferred 5 Santa Barbara database files(adt, brs, edb, xtr, and label.txt) from 32Mb Sundisk PCMCIA to a diskette on A drive on laptop.  Tried to bring up pollbook using election files on drive A for pollbook so I can create a 4K card to load onto the Spyrus, since R6 card creation doesn't support Spyrus yet.  Keep getting message "Please insert Election Media in Drive A:".
The five files that were on the PCMCIA are on the A drive.  Any ideas why this is happening?
