We found the problem was that our Gerber files did not match the Protel format. All we did was create a gerber file using
protel then checked the protel format to see how it declared it's Dcodes. We then changed our format to match theirs.
I've actually been toying with programming a little utility to convert any Gerber file to Protel compatible. If you think
this will be useful I need you to do a couple things for me. Email me and tell me you think it will be useful (so I can
obtain an idea how many people have this problem) and two, email a sample of the type of gerber file you would like
to import to Protel. Please give me the manufactuer's or designers Gerber type (i.e. Orcad) so I can classify the program
to know which type of file it is converting.
