SD Card and Sleepyhead
Hi friends,

I've been using my machine for over a year now. My condition has improved and my AHI is usually below 5. I feel better and am happy.

But I've never been able to get my SD Card to work. When I push it into its slot I get the following message.

SD Card error - remove and reinsert.

But doing so doesn't help.

Should I solve the SD Card problem and get Sleepyhead to more closely monitor my apnea? Are there major benefits in doing so? Currently I note AHI and Large Leaks in my sleep log.

My computer is a Chromebook. I'm not sure it can support Sleepyhead. And I don't have DME support for assistance.

Thanks for any and all help.

Jack

RE: SD Card and Sleepyhead
Hi, Jack,

Welcome to Apnea Board and congratulations on feeling better and taking "charge" of your sleep apnea!!

I'm not familiar with your machine, but I know when I don't "write protect" my SD card by "locking" the SD card when I put it into my computer, I get a similar message on my PAP machine. My PAP machine gives me an option to "re-write" the information on my SD card. If I do that, then my card is OK. I'm sure someone who is familiar with your machine will respond to your question, so hang in there for that person to come along!

Good luck with your PAP therapy and I hope someone can tell you if SleepyHead will work with your computer.

RE: SD Card and Sleepyhead
Hi Jack. As you suspect, there is no compelling reason for you to use the SDCard. Since you do not report to any DME, and the software will not run on a Chromebook, there's really not much a SDCard can do for you.

You could purchase a new SDCard --- same type and capacity as the one you have, and see if it works.

Also, you could purchase a nifty new Windows laptop or notebook computer and install Sleepyhead. Then with a working card you might learn something.

But, it sounds like you're doing fine. Good job!

As one of the MAC hose heads says - you can also get a MAC and run Sleepyhead for Mac. Works like a champ. Smile

RE: SD Card and Sleepyhead
Pretty much any SD card that has 1 GB or more will work fine.

Go ahead and get a new SD card and try it. They're pretty cheap these days. It will record info every night and keep it for a long time. If you have problems in the future, it could come in handy.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

Hi Jack!
Tiger has one for $4.97 after rebate if that helps.

If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

I suspect that Chromebook is the problem - It is not a real PC and is designed to use Chrome browser and apps that run in a browser environment and not the usual applications of a normal PC (or apple/Mac, cough splutter). So it will not run Sleepyhead nor ResScan.

RE: SD Card and Sleepyhead
Hi Jack, Welcome!
If you want and need to solve your SD card problem I hope you do so.

I just want to say I loved your words of describing how you felt after a year of using, saying you 'feel better and you are happy'.
I would love to be able to say those words about my treatment.
Well done and I wish you continued success.

Sleep Tight...
Gabby
