.mat file corrupt?

Asked by Wouter on 22 Apr 2013

Hello,

I tried to open this .mat file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20782274/MOTNL.MAT

But I get the following error:

Error using load
Unknown text on line number 1 of ASCII file
<some path>/MOTNL.MAT
"MATLAB".

I opened this .mat file in notepad and I saw it was created in Matlab 5.0 in 1999. So I believe this is a conversion error? So if this is the case could anyone maybe upconvert it? So I can open it with Matlab 2012a?

Do you want the .mat file I generated? There are a LOT of different variables saved in the workspace

If you are willing to do that, yes I would like that.

Accepted answer

Try

 load('MOTNL.MAT', '-mat')

Remember, Linux is case-sensitive, so possibly the .MAT is throwing it off.

It works here (R2012a,64bit,Windows7)

    >> load('C:\Users\poi\Downloads\MOTNL.MAT')
    Warning: Updating objects saved with previous MATLAB version...
    Resave your MAT files to improve loading speed.

The data looks ok.

Delete and download the file a second time.

I tried that. Maybe it is because I am using Linux, 32bit. Maybe you could export it and upload it?
