    halleluja! thank you again!!
    what i did: i went to the dnakit studio site, downloaded the programm and checked out the site some more.
    found a new page with instructions on how to convert ftdna results from the new chip. see below. i uploaded the result and it has finally been accepted by myheritage as a format they recognize.

    Upload new FTDNA RAW file to MyHeritage

    As you may be aware, FTDNA has recently changed their DNA Chip (from Omniexpress to GSA), so their RAW file is not compatible with MyHeritage upload.
    To fix this problem, use DNA Kit Studio following these instructions.
    1. Download and run DNA Kit Studio
    2. Unzip your FTDNA RAW file
    3. In the option RAW to RAW Converter, set as input file your DNA RAW file, as output choose a filename, such as “genome_V5_MYDNA.txt”
    4. Choose the template called “Template_23andme_v5.txt”
    5. Choose “Match by position”
    6. Click on “Convert”
    7. Once it is finished, upload the output file to MyHeritage.

      Nice, this guide is from today and almost identical to one for mtDNA prediction.

      FTDNA changed his DNA chip to a Illumina GSA model, so now they are able to provide MTDNA DNA markers. But, James Licks’s webpage is not able to process it correctly, so you have to perform conversion to make it compatible.
      1. Download and run DNA Kit Studio
      2. Unzip your FTDNA RAW file
      3. In the option RAW to RAW Converter, set as input file your DNA RAW file, as output choose a filename, such as “genome_V5_MYDNA.txt”
      4. Choose the template called “Template_23andme_v5.txt”
      5. Choose “Match by position”
      6. Click on “Convert”
      7. Once it is finished, go to James Lick’s webpage and upload the output file

        I admin 3 Family Finder results done late April 2019. The raw files look different compared to other earlier Family Finder results. I also failed transferring the newer results to MyHeritage DNA.

        Tried to manipulating the raw files by my self - removal of all non-rs-markers, removal of chromosome not between 1-22, sorting the data by chromosome and position - but the transfer still failed.

        When downloading files from DNA Kit Studio my Norton 360 label these as dangerous and automatically removes them.

        Have given up and will wait and hope that MyHeritage DNA finds a solution soon.

          Hallelujah is right!!! Thanks so much Kohleydrat, your step-by-step FINALLY worked for me!! My Dad has been dead for 10 years, I recently upgraded his DNA sample to Autosomal and there are pathetically few matches. I've uploaded to GedMatch, but wanted MORE - some place with TREES!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!!!!!

            well i halleluja-ed too soon - the converted file was indeed accepted at upload at myheritage with the notice that it would be processed in something like 5-7 days. nothing happened for close to 3 weeks and then i got the notice that the file had been rejected for incompatibilty. so i am back to square one.

              No luck uploading.
              I downloaded DNA Kit Studio. I tried about six combinations based on the suggestions here. For example: “Template_23andme_v5.txt” or "Template_FTDNA.txt" and different sub selections under each. Sometimes it gave an error immediately on upload. Other times upload seemed to work but a few hours later the error would appear; "Invalid kit". Tried zipping the csv - still did not process successfully.

              I compared to an older kit that had successfully uploaded. At least one format I made looked exactly the same as the old kit format - same column headers, same order, same content appearance - yet it did not process successfully. Seems unnecessarily obstructive by MyHeritage. Upload to GedMatch happened OK. I would appreciate any solution. Registering to be able to write this post took a couple of days for the email to turn up - so please be patient if you have any good news on how to do this upload. Thank you.

                It's not working for me neither. Are there informations if Myheritage is working on a solution at all?
