Data link question
I've been using a ResMed VPAP S for about 4 years.
I'd like to access the data and be able to display it.
I have ResScan 4.3 software.
My machine appears to have a data port in the back -- I do not see a data card. I'm thinking I need some sort of proprietary data cable.
What do I need; and where can I get it?

RE: Data link question
Hi justMongo
Welcome to the site.
What your looking at is a standard SD card port. Kinda like the one on your camera or some smart phones. There are a variety in the sizes but get the largest you can. Then you will need
a SD card reader to convert the SD card to a USB port input for your computer. Mine has a brand name on it of Targus but their are others. Hope this helps.

RE: Data link question
I'm not really seeing an SD type port. Looks more like an interface.

I am not completely sure I understand your question but I am willing to give it a shot. With my camera (I have an SD card but only for storage purposes), I take the cable that came with it and plug it into the camera and the other end into the USB port and then I tell it to transfer the photos to my laptop. I would think you could do the same thing with your machine with the proper cable and ask it to transfer it to your data software. I am just guessing that it would work the same way. Sorry I am not more knowledgeable. You could go to a computer store and tell them what you are trying to do and see what they tell you (or you could do like I do to save gas and my time, I call them first). Sure hope this helps you a little bit.

I tried to post photos using the HTML IMG tag; but the forum blocked me because I have too few posts. Perhaps, I can post them later.

I am very familiar with SD cards since I'm a techie; and there's no way I'm looking at an SD card or port.

Let me try this with a photo attachment of the data port area of my machine.

I found it.. I need a special data card. Provider #10 sells it.
Perhaps I need a more modern BiPAP machine?

RE: Data link question
I was going to say that you need a ResLink module (S8 ResLink if it's an S8 VPAP S... there are two versions of ResLink):
http://www.resmed.com/us/assets/document...er_eng.pdf

Then you can plug a SmartMedia card into that.

I would first find out what kind of data you can expect to get out of it. If it's just compliance data, that won't help you much. If the ResLink kit costs a lot, I would say better to put that money toward a new machine.

Also, try to find out of if ResScan can read it. I saw in an S8 brochure the mention of a different software called "AutoScan."

RE: Data link question
Hi justMongo,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Do you have an S8 model VPAP? The reason I'm asking is because I think the S8 models use a different type of card and the readers are farily expensive..
Hang in there and someone who knows more about this will be able to help you solve this riddle.
Best of luck to you.

the usb port I am speaking of would be on your computer/laptop.
