"Unable to convert dataset" when sending files via StoreSCU.exe

I'm trying to send DICOM files from a directory on my PC to Orthanc using the DICOM Toolkit's StoreSCU.

No matter what, the transfer fails with the following error. I can send the files with no problem using the web interface, however. Any ideas?

That’s a STORESCU failure, I recommend using the similar tool from dcm4che or another means of sending it.

Thank you! dcm4che worked perfectly.

You must ask storescu to propose the RLE transfer syntax. This is done by adding the flag “–propose-rle”. For instance:

storescu --propose-rle localhost 4242 ./1.2.840.10008.1.2.5.dcm
