Yeah, I didn't want to go there but I'd say 95% is user error (for the XDS option).
On the other hand XDS will process whatever junk you provide it. sometimes it's worth looking at the various logfiles etc.


P.S. I feel the flames already form HKL-folks

Hi J?rgen, Kelly and Nat,

I tried XDS and MosFilm, they simply cannot index the data.


"simply cannot index" is hard to believe. 90% of indexing failures are
due to wrong header values, 9% to the spindle rotating in the "wrong"
direction, and the last 1% has other causes. I have yet to see a
single-crystal dataset that cannot be indexed.

If you are willing to confidentially share (at least some of) your data,
I could try to process them with XDS - at least you get another
opionion. Easiest way: copy them into a Dropbox or Wuala folder and
share that.
