Thank you for the help! When I read that post I found out that EEG Lab only does .EEG files. When I went back into my files, I found that the original files were .EEG and it converted to .PTN when I exported it from the Nihon Kohden application. So then I just used this function that converts .EEG to .MAT instead of EEG Lab. I found it on this page EEG Lab was super complex and I am a matlab beginner, so I decided not to download it, but it is a much more powerful solution and can do so much more.

You should post a copy of that as an Answer; I would vote for it.
