We have a number of Symbol 6800 bar code scanners that give us a "Write protect error wiring drive E". We are using Wavelink to manage our scanners. Anyone have any advice or knowledge about this error?

Write protect error wiring drive E

I assume that 'Drive E' is on a PC workstation somewhere and it is supposed to receive the data from the Symbol 6800 reader/scanner.

If so, it sounds like your PC workstation and/or an application running on it (Wavelink?) has an issue, not the Symbol 6800.

For testing purposes, can you configure your Wavelink software to write somewhere else?

Have you contacted the Wavelink Support team ( http://www.wavelink.com/Customer-Care-Overview ) ?

Good Luck,

RE: symbol 6800 Read Write error

I guess I left out a key piece of info. It's during the programming of the scanner that the error shows on the scanner. Some will program normal but other give an error. I might have to call Wavelink... just thought someone else might be familiar with this.
