I have upgraded my pen firmware, but I still have problems using pattern from segment 176 higher.
Older versions of the FDT/FDK and the Paper SDK got the segment size from a hardcoded table. When new pattern was allocated this was changed to getting the size from the license file instead. Since we now have run out of some of the pattern segments that were present in the table in the older versions, size from new segments can't be handled and will cause size (width, height) to be 0.0. This will result in pattern address 0.0.0.0. This was solved in FDT 188.8.131.52 (released in October 2009) and Paper SDK 2.0.0 (released in April 2010). There is no work-around, the solution is to upgrade.
FDT/FDK versions 184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11 and Paper SDK versions 1.1.0-1.2.0
