Can Oscar read off a hard drive instead of SD card?

Can Oscar read off a hard drive instead of SD card?
Hi, I'm assisting a relative who is new to CPAP and we wanted to be able to import his data and read in OSCAR.     I've installed latest version (1.4.0) and set up a new profile for him.

Since he does not have his own computer, I had him download the SD card to his iPhone, zip the files, and send to me.

My problem - I can't seem to get Oscar to read the files.

When I choose File>Import CPAP data, I direct OSCAR to the folder where I've unzipped the files.

As you can see, the top level folder is P-SERIES 2, with sub-folder 26250086, then subfolders D, E, PO, and PO 2.  Subfolder D has 2 tiny files, E is empty, and PO and P02 appear to have the data.  (See attached screenshots from my File Explorer.  Note that there are a lot more folders underneath the PO and PO2.

So the data is there .... how can I direct OSCAR to fetch?

Thanks!

You almost have it right! Unzip the card into a new directory, not directly to the desktop. Then import from that new directory, which will contain P-Series 2 as a subdirectory.

I think you want to point OSCAR at the folder that contains the P-SERIES 2 folder - the drive letter?

I realized that the easiest thing would be to just copy to a blank SD card in my own computer .... but to no avail  This is what the directory structure looks like.  Any ideas?

What should these directories look like?

It looks like Windows renamed some duplicate directories to add “ 2” after the name.

You’ll need to remove that from P-SERIES and merge the two P0 directories. (I didn’t see if there were P1 and later?)

OSCAR expects a top-level directory containing P-SERiES.

Thanks, yes, the directories were duplicated.   I tried copying just the data folders that were under the PO directory up underneath the P-Series.  You can see that structure in the attached image ... but that still didn't work.

Could you (or someone else) perhaps post a screenshot of what the directory/folder structure should look like?
