[FieldTrip] unsupported header format "unknown"

Hi Dan,

I see that you asked the same question on the EEGLAB github. If the usual suspect toolboxes cannot read the specific file format, there are 3 options:

1 you need to write an importer yourself, based on a description of the file format. If a description of the file format is not available online, you need to contact the company for this.
2 you need to ask the company to share (if existing) code to import your data into matlab.
3 you need to work with a fileformat that fieldtrip/eeglab/… can work with.

Best wishes,

Hi all,
when I try to use the code:

cfg.dataset= 'EG3_X_test_vis_sc.dsmp';

I get the error: unsupported header format "unknown".
when I use ft_read_header I get:

Error using ft_notification (line 345)
unsupported header format "unknown"

Error in ft_error (line 39)

Error in ft_read_header (line 2767)
      ft_error('unsupported header format "%s"', headerformat);

any ideas?
