    I've already made contact with Nicole, but wanted to share this problem with the entire audience in case others experience this problem too. 
    I've attempted to import tags into P3 with the new Biomark HPR plus pit tag reader. When prompted, I choose to "Download this File:", I get an error message and no tags are imported. However, if I choose "Download All Files", all the tags are imported. I need the ability to import only one specific file at a time for my purposes. Not sure if anyone else has had success using the HPR reader.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    After talking with John about this, we remembered that the last release of P3 (v1.5.4) addresses this issue. It allows you to specify a file to import, but you must use the file name the HPR+ uses internally. Even though on the main screen it refers to the files by a number (e.g. 0, 1, 2, etc.) internally that file has a name such as tag_A0_00.tag, where A0 is the transceiver ID and 00 is the file number. You can view these file names if you go to the Files menu section in the HPR+.

    See this news article for some more details:
