[Equipment] ISO Compatible USB Card Reader for Phillips Respironics M-Series
#1
HELP.

I need to find a compatible card reader with a USB attachment for an older M-series Phillips Respironics machine.

It uses the Encore SmartCard data card.

Does anyone know of a compatible card reader? All I seems to find are credit card readers.

Most people will say get a new cpap machine that is compatible with Sleepyhead but don't realize that it is just not that easy sometimes.

The reader you need is a Mako DT3500 SmartCard Reader. Some times refered to as a Mako Infineer DT3500.

 
If you check the Supplier list Link on the Menu bar, multiple suppliers carry it.

I just started with card reading, but the card reader that came on my laptop reads my Resmed S9 card. Another card reader actually does not. Did you try any regular card readers?

G'day Slipsleep. Welcome to Apnea Board.

The S9 uses a standard SD card, same as found in cameras and some other portable devices. The older CPAP machines used a proprietary format card which need a specific card reader. I suspect the OP's machine uses such a proprietary card.
