To safely use the data card, simply move the slide switch on the side of the card to the locked position before you insert it in the card reader of your computer. To be ultra safe you can turn the S9 off by holding the start/stop switch down for three seconds before removing the card. And don't worry about the doctor because the S9 keeps summary data internally and will write it back to the card if you somehow corrupt the card. People who are running Windows 8.1 (like me) have discovered that Windows writes a couple of files on the card if it is inserted in the unlocked position. If that happens (and it will), not to worry because when you put it back in the S9, the S9 will erase the card and rewrite the data from internal memory to the card.

Being a fairly new user, I recently worked through the same concerns about getting scolded by the doctor but found I actually had no problem.

By the way, I found SleepyHead to be easier to use than ResScan and it gives me all the information I need to monitor my therapy. It can be downloaded free from the following link.

I didn't know you could shut down the machine that way -- Hey, thanks.

First, if you put the SD Card back in the machine after Windows (etc.) writes extra files the machine will NOT automatically erase the card -- it will OFFER to do so and you can just remove the card.

Once back in your computer you can remove those files -- we'll help.

You CAN allow the machine to erase and re-write the files on the card, but that is YOUR CHOICE.

Opening up your machine to allow making clinical settings means nothing.

Unless you actually CHANGE something it won't show and it really just reverts to normal mode.

IF you change the settings using either the CLINICAL MENU or the RESCAN software there is a log.

Likely no one will ever see or make note of the change log.

IF you change something will your doctor care? We can't know.

Some doctors get irritable about that, some don't. Some are too clueless to notice.

Worst case your doctor fires you or your fire your doctor. Most people would PREFER to avoid that but if your doctor is extremely pissy about it then likely a new doc is a good idea anyway.

No one can say what the right course FOR YOU would be. We'll help you make chances if YOU DECIDE to do that but no one will tell you to start doing that.

(For myself: I changed my machine BEFORE using it the first time because the doctor's setting were just not well though out -- in my opinion and based on results I was correct about this. When the doc saw me for the 3 week followup he was delighted by the results and either DID NOT CAR or was too CLUELESS to realize that the settings were nothing like what he had written on the Rx. For me it was no issue, just curious that he didn't even comment.)

Summary:

Rescan will itself cause NO PROBLEMS.

Windows will write a couple of things to the SD Card if you leave it unlock (move the little write protect tab before inserting SD Card into computer.)

IF you forget, you can remove those extra items OR you can let the machine erase the card.

IF you change the settings, you will worry about it a little bit, and likely your doctor will at most give you a small scolding.

You should run the rescan tutorial and diagnostics software. I think I've seen a link floating around on sourceforge somewhere.
