Almost There

We finished creating our first roll of microfilm using the Kodak Archive Writers. The outcome was “semi successful”. Let me explain…First, we had a problem connecting the Writer to the registry’s database. Our MIS Director solved this problem by rebooting and reconnecting the Archive Writer.Then shortly after a second problem occurred…A roll of film holds about 4,000 images. It takes approximately an hour to transfer the images from the database to microfilm. For the first 59 minutes everything went fine. But, it was that last minute that caused us concern. As the final images sped to the Archive Writer the operator received a message….”unable to connect to the database”. We are not sure if all of the images transferred successfully. Unfortunately, there is only one way to check, develop the film. Tomorrow we will do just that…then once developed we’ll check the film to find out if our attempt was “successful” or “semi successful”. Still, even if the film is complete I am not happy with the errors received during transfer. Consequently, we’ll try a second roll and if the same problems persist call Kodak for help.
