I would stick with the FAST32. It is an accepted standard for SD cards. The exFAT, while allowing for much larger storage devices, responds much slower to inquiries and commands than the FAT and FAT32 counterparts.

RE: What format for SD Card for Dreamstation 2
A related question. I recently received a Dreamstation 2 Auto PAP from Phillips (replacement for Dreamstation Auto CPAP as part of the recall). It didn't come with an SD card as far as I can see. I know I can call Phillips and see if they can send me one. If that doesn't work out, does the Dreamstation 2 take the same size and type as the Dreamstation? My current SD card is 4GB per what I saw when I checked the info when it was attached to my PC. I would like to use an SD card in the hopes that I will be able to use OSCAR to read it -- someday --- after the code/algorithm is figured out.
Thank you.
(PS OSCAR software is terrific. Showed OSCAR/data to my sleep MD today, she was impressed!)

Yes, your current SD card will work.   I would recommend that you format prior to using it in your DS2.  That way there won't be any old data that could interfere.

Thank you. I was wondering if I could or should do that. I have all of the DREAMSTATION ONE data loaded into OSCAR.
