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.
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
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.
