Hi S, dsd is a dewesoft data file format. Please provide more information about your issue as it is not clear from your post what you are trying to achieve. Then we can help you. Best regards, Primoz Rome

Most probably you are trying to read the dsd file by other software package or import the data in your application? In this case I am very sorry to say that dsd file is very dynamic file structure changing all the time with each release and therefore highly unsuitable for such an use. The good news however is that due to big amount of questions we got on this topic we will change the file format in upcoming Dewesoft 7. The header file will be in XML format and the data will be readable through a simple DLL.

Although, you said that it is unsuitable, would it be possible to get some specification for the version 6.5? I would like to load it to my own C++ application. I would appreciate it a lot! Thank you!

The file format description for version 6.x does not exists. The data is written in blocks (like database) and each object of Dewesoft writes the data in binary format which is changing as the new functions are added. Unfortunately the only way is to wait for the XML structure. The first release will be available in June. If you like, I can send you a preliminary specification for XML.

Thank you for your answer. If I understand it correctly, it uses serialization to store objects to file. I have just another question. Is the data in DSD normally "readable" (by reading byte per byte) or does it use some kind of compression? I will wait till you release new version and then I will ask for XML specification. Thank you!

It is not compressed, but it is written in the blocks (like database structure). Therefore the index stream must be used to see the placement of portions of data within the structure. I really suggest to wait for the new file structure...

I am also interested in the new v7 XML / binary and the old v6.5 binary Specification. Could you please send it to me?

For the moment we have a document for Dewesoft 7 setup file format. You can find that in download for licensed users under Dewesoft 7 folder http://www.dewesoft.org/download_licenced.php Data files have the same XML header, the binary part of the data will be readable with using small DLL file.

I wish to use a d7d file with Python on MacOS without exporting it in *.txt (because it is far too slow). Would you send me the source code of DWDataReader so I can compile it myself?

I think it could be a good idea to provide it for each release with the compiled libraries.

Thanks for your help,

Daniel

Hi,

I have some *.dsd files that I would like to read. Do I need to have DEWE software installed or is there a stand-alone reader available? I tried the DWDataReader for Matlab and Python but they didn't work.

Hi,

yes, you will need to install DEWESoft V6 in order to read the *.dsd files. The DWDataReader is only compatible with newer data formats (*.d7d or *.dxd).

You can find the installer for DEWESoft V6 here: https://www.dewesoft.com/download?file=DEWESoft667...

Hi,

I have a labview program that record data (20kSamples/sec) in a binary format with a header for channel configurations.

Is there a way to convert my recorded datas in Dewesoft X format in order to read them with Dewesoft X and use for example the math functions (Post Processing) ?

Thanks for your help,
