4D data reading

Hello everyone, I have been wrestling with these problems for a while
Here is what I found: Fieldtrip/EEGLAB will read neuroscan files (.avg,
and .eeg), and will read raw data (e,..)from 4D.
I believe that EEGLAB/Fieldtrip may not have a template for the 148-
Channel system co-ordinates. Christian and Don Rojas created one for me
in early April this year.
A FIF export from the 4D system may also solve this problem. Stephen
Moratti helped me with this a while a ago. It puts out three
files .xyz, .4D and the original e,.. file. But, if the .xyz file which
has coordinates for 148 channels does not match with the template, then
the data will not load. I think for one may have to load a create a 148
channel template for this purpose. This is my experience with EEGLAB,
and I think that they underlying engine is the same for both EEGLAB and
Then again, I may be completely wrong about everything except the
templates that were created for me.
