Hello Lynn,
I am trying to analyze Illumina (Sentrix BeadChip Mouse Ref8) data  
with the beadarray package.
All I have is:

1) a geneprofile.csv (matrix with expression values)
2) for each array strip, three files (.idat, .jpg, .xml)
3) one .sdf file
4) metrix.txt
5) the illumina CD with beadmap files
6) one copy of the BeadStudio software

I assume I can't use the beadarray package, is that correct?
Can I use the BeadStudio software to obtain bead level text files?
