SleepyHead does not support the ResMed S8 series, just the S9 series.
From their website:
Supports Philips Respironics System One Machines
Supports ResMed S9 CPAP machines
Supports DeVilbiss Intellipap machines
Your only option to view your data is to use ResScan instead.
You will either have to purchase the proprietary SmartCard reader on eBay or find a DME that sells it (much more expensive), or, I used to take my SmartCard to my DME with a flash drive and he would copy the data from my SmartCard to my flash drive, then I brought it home and downloaded it into ResScan.
If you're using Windows 8 I think you'll have to use ResScan 4.1_SP1, I don't believe version 3.16 is supported on Windows 8, I think it only goes up to Windows 7.
If you do buy a SmartCard reader, the least expensive option comes from an eBay seller in Israel for about half the price a DME would charge and takes a couple of weeks to arrive.
The S8's SmartCard also operates differently from the S9's SD Card, on the S8 you insert the SmartCard into the slot and it writes the last 4 days of data to it for download to ResScan, on the S9, you always leave the SD Card inserted so the high-resolution data can be recorded while you sleep.
