Filled Data Card
#1
Filled Data Card
   

The attached screen grab seems to show that I filled my CPAP data card a few weeks ago. When I discovered it, just now, I copied the folder on the card and saved it on my Desktop.
How do you proceed from here? Can I re-format the card, delete the folder, buy a new card? It is my Respironics machine. Does it expect a particular card format or folder name?
Thank you for your help.
Greg

RE: Filled Data Card
I only noticed 25.7 MB on the card.  That seems unusually small.  Or am I reading that wrong?

The card is also listed as "read only", any chance you forgot to unlock it before you put it in your xPAP?

RE: Filled Data Card
I'm not at all familiar with this generation of Remstar and its card. This sounds like the card would have been rated for 32 MB with 25 MB or so available to write onto. Most all newer machines take a standard SD or SDHC card between 2-32 GB.

Wait on doing any action, as there's some older machines that actually need a Smart Card and not the SD card.

Found the problem. The small sliding "lock" on the SD card had broken off. On YouTube I found a couple of clever ways to repair the card by covering the empty slot with strong (but thin) tape. It is working now. Ordered replacement card anyway. Wanted to post this so someone else might benefit. Thanks to all who replied!
