Zbar not recognizing certain formats

iPhone App
  • Sista


    I installed Zbar on my phone as well as installed the linux version of it on my PC.  Both of them immediately recognize 128c and QR formats. It works perfectly. But it is not recognizing any of the other formats it is supposed to work with. I tried it with:
    128a, 128b, code39, interleaved2of5.
    Using the phone, the camera tries to focus, but it does not recognize the barcodes. The images are very clear and has absolutely no noise and completely in focus.
    Any idea why this is happening? Is there a way to enable diagnostic messages that will help me figure out why it is unable to recognize there formats. It is very strange that it can recognize 128c, but not 128a or 128b.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Can you provide images of the barcodes that are not recognized?
