    I had this problem today for a cousin's DNA and the 23andMe tool fixed it.
    So glad this is helping people!

    Yeah I didn't notice the PM, but I've read and responded to it. I've built out a tool that seems to work 100%. The key to solving it is a combination of what I was doing before, filling in the blank template file of a working file with the data from the non-working one, but keeping the I's and D's from the template and not zeroing the entire thing and also filling everything in by position number instead of RSID, which is what I was doing the first go around.

    I stuck it up on one of my websites where I'm doing some other DNA stuff, anyone can feel free to use it if they wish:

    If you do use the tool, please respond in here and let others know if it works or not. So far in my testing its working 100%, but the more people that try it the more we will know if this is a solution until FTDNA resolves it themselves.

    Brilliant, I had been trying for two weeks to upload from Ancestry, read this and did it in minutes. That was 2 days ago but it has taken FTDNA 2 days to allow me to post here. So if joining the forum takes 2 days, how long will it take them to fix the upload?

    No, I don't really see a point in doing that, all you would be doing is losing a tiny percentage of snps for no reason

    The converter on the website worked like a charm for my two kits that weren't uploading from Ancestry.

    I tried the downloadable version, but it is stating that I'm missing a dll, and I don't feel like trying to figure that one out right now.

    Thanks so much for getting these created!!

    LOL....its all good....thank you for that link, it explains some questions I had myself! Now I can totally see why they can't accept v5 23andme files. Its really a shame all of these companies can't agree on something closer to eachother, I understand they are all competing, but at the end of the day they are only hurting the consumer, they should really just focus on the tools they provide to build trees and find matches etc and use a more standardized dna sample. For example Ancestry is fantastic at building trees and doing ancestor research but awful at analyzing dna matches, while FTDNA is great at analyzing dna matches but terrible at building trees and doing research......ugh. And then we have GEDMATCH with some amazing tools but a gui design and usability that puts off the average user from using it actively(no offense to those guys, they do amazing work).

    I may just end up building a tool that is a mixture of ftdna chromosome browser and their matrix tool but allows more people on it and ability to mark them and guess where on a tree line they are related. It would be nice to just upload all my matches somewhere and mark known people and it just starts figuring out how and where people are related automagically.

If you look at the Ancestry v1 versus v2 you see 407,968 out of 641,908 are shared which explains the ~60% overlap between the two attempting to use this tool to build a v2 file out of a v1 file using a v2 template.

    Technically we could build a tool to convert from any of these formats to another, but there would be so much discarded due to the lack of overlap, I'm not sure it would be worth the time.
