Arnaud Delorme <mailto:arno***AT***> recommend that I talk to you to see if I can get some help about EEG file format. I am new into the EEG technology. THe first thing I came across is that I have some EEG files. How I can use a software to read that file since I do not know its format all? Does it mean that I have to take try-and-erro to figure out the format first, and then write some code to read it? Is there anything that can facilitate this process?

try using the BIOSIG-tools It has an autodetection for many signal dataformats.
An overview of supported formats is avalable at:

The latest release is BIOSIG.070. It works with Matlab and Octave.

HDR = sopen('yourfilename'); HDR=sclose(HDR);
HDR.TYPE contains the type of the file.

[data,HDR]=sload('yourfile'); % loads the data into your workspace.
