Questions about the BatchPCB service

When I try to upload the zip file containing the gerber files that were generated using the SFE CAM file, BatchPCB gives me an error about filenames ("BatchPCB is locking down..."). I've double and triple-checked the filenames (Even changing the file extensions to lower-case from the default uppercase), but BatchPCB simply won't accept my ZIP file. What am I doing wrong?!?

I'm uploading a single ZIP file (I also tried .tar.gz and .tgz variations), containing the following:
Code: Select all
MiLF.GBL
MiLF.GBO
MiLF.GBS
MiLF.GML
MiLF.GTL
MiLF.GTO
MiLF.GTP
MiLF.GTS
MiLF.TXT (Excellon Drill File)
I'm basically using the SparkFun CAM file, available here.

Edit: If it helps at all, I've attached the ZIP file.

MiLF.GTL -- the .gml is not on the list.

I suggest that the next time they modify the submission program that they generate an error message that says something like "Unexpected filetype found in MilF.zip: MiLF.GTL"

d'OH! Thanks! I must be blind

That would be great. Or maybe update the SFE cam file so it generates the correct files...

Thanks for your help!
