1. The barcode was scanned with the reader
2. Information was downloaded to the computer.
3. In computer we see completely different number.
Same happens with all 4 readers that we have in stock. We used them before and there were no problems.
We do not have that problem, if we use other readers.
1.Is there a software in the reader, which should be updated?

Re: The problem with reading the barcode
Be sure the Flic scanner is set to the factory default configuration by scanning the Defaults bar code given above.
Then check the Format options for Characters to Strip and Characters to Append (see page 10) and make sure these are set correctly.
In order to scan the ?Factory Defaults? bar code in the Flic Operator?s Guide to reset your Flic scanner to the default settings: Select Flicware , Tools , Format and add the appropriate control character(s) in the Characters to Append box.

usually you need to configure the reader to tell it what kind of barcodes you want it to read and how to interpret & output the codes to your computer (whether you need prefix or suffixes to your codes( for automation))
the user manual for the reader has some bar codes to configure the settings for the scanner.
<p>Reading a bar code in a portable document format (PDF)
document is a simple procedure. Some newer phones come with smart barcode
scanners, and you can scan the Internet to buy. A barcode is a series of lines
of code that identifies a product. When you print the document with a single
piece of technology, you can read a barcode in a PDF document. <br />
<p>1. Open the PDF document. Adobe Reader PDF reader is the
most common. If you do not have Adobe, download the latest version of the
company's website for free download (see Resources). <br />
<p>2. Select "File" drop-down box to the left of
Adobe. Select "Print" and then "OK". <br />
<p>3. Set the bar code scanner. Jumping the gun and a
horizontal red line is designed with the focus of the scanner. Move the line
through the barcode printed on the document until the scanner beeps. Release
the trigger and see the screen on the back of the scanner, which will give you
the information encoded in bar code. <br />
<p>4. Download a barcode scanning application for your smart
phone if you do not want a handheld scanner. Most bar code applications are
free. Open the program and point the camera at the barcode in the PDF. Wait
until the camera for a snapshot of the barcode will not make up the barcode in
the light of the entire camera to take. The program will decode the barcode and
display the results. <br />
<p>Bar code symbols are composed of a number of adjacent bars
and spaces of different widths of pre-defined codes. A barcode scanner is used
to read or scan the bar code symbol to represent the information to decode.
Once the symbol is scanned by a handheld reading device or another, can then be
used by computer software to track inventory and perform other functions.
Microsoft Excel is a computer application that use bar code information can
make the business perform. <br />
<p>1. Insert bar code scanner to your computer using the
"interface cable keyboard wedge". The keyboard wedge interface cable
looks like the printer port of your computer, and differs only in that a
connection between the scanner bar code and serial number of your computer or
USB port. The cable is provided as a peripheral pattern with hand-held bar code
scanners. <br />
<p>2. Open Microsoft Excel on your computer after the bar code
scanner connected to your computer. <br />
<p>3. Links on the Excel cell to the bar code to enter and bar
code scanning to load it into Microsoft Excel. <br />
<p>4. View the data in Excel file is translated into a vision
of the bar code information. <br />
Did you make the barcodes using Code 39 or 3 of 9? If so, the scanner defaults to reading between 2 and 55 character Code 39 barcodes. Go to the Motorola Solutions support portal and search for Article ADC-00404 portal motorolasolutions com. Print the article and scan the Code 39 Any Length barcode. Once this is done the scanner will read all Code 39 barcodes.
The barcode reader is something that the backup software typically uses to identify which tape it is dealing with.
So typically your backup software can already natively read the barcode and therefor you don't need any other software.
The linked barcode reader is probably for reading a barcode that was provided via a picture (from a scanner or camera). This has nothing to do with the barcode reader that can be part of a tape library. NET UPC Barcode Reader
<p>Barcode Scanners Symbol read and translates the barcodes on
merchandise. The scanner translates the bar code symbols on the label says the

<p>3. Move the scanner closer to the bar. The symbol bar code
scanner cannot calibrate the bar if you wrong position. Place the scanner
directly over the bar and wait for the scanner to read and transmit the code. <br />
<p>4. Wait until the bar code scanner symbol to complete the
boot. The symbol bar code scanner is initialized when the USB cable is
connected to the computer. Initialization requires a short period of time to
complete the process. Let the bar code scanner symbol to be idle for 4-5

It's a USB scanner. Maybe you accidentally scanned some rogue barcode that changed the default symbology to something that you can't use in Meditech. I would start troubleshooting basically with this. On the PC where it no longer reads into your Meditech software, try to remove and re-insert the USB cable on both ends - scanner and USB port. Next, ensure that the scanner's driver is set to use this HID (human interface device) as a keyboard emulation device. Next, get (or download and print) the manual for the device, because it has barcodes for changing scanning settings, symbologies, etc. Scan the barcode that says "Reset to default settings", then try scanning again. At this point, if you still cannot get a reading in the Meditech software, try to specify the correct symbology for your medication barcodes. If you still have issues, try a different USB port on the same PC. If still issues, try a different PC. If it works on Meditech on another PC, perhaps you need to update your Meditech version on the bad PC to match the version that works. If all else fails, exchange it for another one; perhaps it truly is defective. I hope you can get up and scanning again!
Edit: I just realized this scanner has more cables than just USB. Are you using a wedge? If so, what kind (PS/2, RS232 (serial) interface, etc.)? There is different troubleshooting for PS/2 and RS232.
If you're sure that the barcode is correct then ignore the following.
Otherwise, download a free barcode font and install.
1. Open up wordpad .. and type any number say "12345", and then convert it by choosing the barcode font. 2. Print out the barcode (usually at least 26pt) 3. Leave wordpad as the active window and scan the barcode 4. "12345" should be inserted into the wordpad document.
Now you know that it works.
This should work on the default setting of most scanners.
