Thanks for all the response for a newbee. Now I have another question. I have uploaded all the data from both machines into SleepyHead. I wanted to transfer the data to my laptop to take with me to the doctor, however, I could not upload like I did to my desktop because my laptop does not have a SD chip socket. So, I tried exporting the data to a file and importing that file to my laptop, but his did not work. It looks like the only option on the export is to export to a CSV file. When I attempt to import this CSV file to my laptop, the SleepyHead software on my laptop does not recognize the CSV file as a legitimate data file.
Has anyone found a solution to this other then purchasing a SD to USB adopter?

.csv files are best opened with a spreadsheet like Excel or MsWorks but can also be opened with Wordpad or any word processor but will have to be sorted manually then.
That aside, I don't see why SH wouldn't import anything that it exported??? I assume you are using the "Import" feature of SH? And you have used SH to export it? Odd...but I have never tried doing that. I'll give it a shot and let you know how it goes for me.
You COULD copy the FILES themselves over to the other machine but this will take a bit of computer knowledge.
(I don't have time right now to go do it and give you the blow by blow but perhaps someone else would.)
Buying the adapter is NO BIG DEAL though probably. New SD cards are frequently including such adapters even. Try Walmart or order from Amazon for a very low price.
Resmed *might* be harder, but Sleepyhead should be almost trivial to move the data.
Resmed software checks for all sorts of things that are NONE OF ITS BUSINESS*. SleepyHead is a far more rational and polite program.
*Resmed won't read data from a card with any EXTRA FILES (or directories) present.
That's just stupid. They had to WORK to screw it up like that so it must be intentional.

Does anyone know in what folder the data is stored? I cannot seem to find the data file on my desktop.
When you click the sleepyhead icon to open the software, at the bottom just before you select the user, there is a white line that says "Folder" and it shows the directory, usually in your "mydocuments/SleepyHeadData-Testing"
If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.
