Dear colleagues,

I'm a new user of EEGLAB and I think I have some problems with the RAM. I'm working with MatLab 7.10.0 (R2010a) and EEGLAB v8.0.3.5b. I'm using Windows XP with 3.21 GB RAM. When i want to load a dataset of a colleague in set file format (set file 5 MB und the fdt file with 400 MB) i get the message "out of memory" in a "fread Out error" window. The "memory" command in MatLab shows the following informations:

Maximum possible array:              83 MB (8.720e+007 bytes) *
Memory available for all arrays:    510 MB (5.343e+008 bytes) **
Memory used by MATLAB:              288 MB (3.019e+008 bytes)
Physical Memory (RAM):             3292 MB (3.451e+009 bytes)

*  Limited by contiguous virtual address space available.
** Limited by virtual address space available.

It looks that MatLab gets not enough memory. I already used older EEGLAB version, but that do not work as well. Did you have any advice for me?

Thanks a lot,

best regards,
