RE: FlashPAP - FlashAir WiFi SD card utility
(03-07-2015 07:25 PM)TiredToo Wrote:  I got a FlashAir II WiFI SD card for my AS10 so I could wirelessly transfer my therapy data to my computer without having to constantly remove and reinsert the SD card. There are other threads here about a Windows/Wine program that helps make this wireless transfer easier but in the end I ended up writing my own anyway.

To be clear, I am not trying to compete with the other program (they are both free) but rather I'm just offering an alternative. My original intent was just to make it for myself but as I continued to use it I decided to add some customization options and share it with others.

It is 100% free to use with no catches and it runs on Java (7 or above) so it should work with Windows, Mac and Linux so long as Java is installed, and it usually already is.

It supports multiple users and also command line switches that allow you to run the program in an automatic mode. For SleepyHead users, there is also a command line switch that will run SleepyHead and automatically import the new data as well.

See the included ReadMe.txt file for more information on how to use the command line switches.

It has been personally tested with my ResMed AirSense 10 and although not tested with the ResMed S9, I made some minor tweaks for it based on information I have gathered from this forum and elsewhere on the web.

I can add other brands/models if someone could kindly provide me with more information on how the folders and files are organized on the SD card. Theoretically it should work with any machine capable of using a FlashAir II SD card, but it will require me to make some minor modifications in order to add support for a different model. I'd be happy to do this for anyone interested.

The program requires no installation. The download is a zip file which can be unzipped to your desktop or anywhere else on your computer. Just double-click the FlashPAP.jar file to run it.

For now at least, there is no provision for assisting in setting up the FlashAir II SD card, but rather it is assumed that you already have that part working.

Thanks. Looks GREAT! Are there detailed instructions as to how to set it up. Where can I find the wireless SD cards? Can the wireless SD card be read by ResScan in the normal manner by my DME to prove compliance. Will ResMed be able to read the card in my AirSense 10 via the cell phone connection, as always? Bob.

You can get the Toshiba W-03 card on Amazon, Newegg, eBay. Lots of other places may carry it.

Your DME, ResMed, MyAir, AirView, NSA can all read your card like a normal SD card and they will never know what kind of card you have in your machine. Though, do make a backup of your card once it is working. FlashAir has a hidden folder named SD_WLAN which holds the CONFIG file for FlashAir's network.



Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

Does this also work with Flash Air III?

RE: FlashPAP - FlashAir WiFi SD card utility
The terms FlashAir III and W-03 refer to the same card, so yes it does. As far as I'm concerned, using a wifi card to connect to a computer is the only way to go.

I use FlashPAP to load data from a FlashAir III wifi sd card in my machine to my computer and display it with SleepyHead .

RE: FlashPAP - FlashAir WiFi SD card utility
Okay, that was easy! I received my FlashAir card yesterday and it is working perfectly today! I moved last nights sleep data wirelessly to my computer this morning and I am smiling! Thank you for the great utility to make the transfer so easy.

I am running OS-X El Capitan on a Mackintosh (Home built computer) and was concerned with not having native WiFi. So, I spent a couple hours reading about adding a USB WiFi adapter to my Hack, finally found the RaLink drivers and they simply installed and worked - which was cool since there were problems with some things like that since Apples improved security in a recent update to OS-X.

Then I got the FlashAir running and that was simple and just worked great.

Then I found the comments in the thread about changing the FlashAir to STA mode and did that and removed the USB WiFi dongle I had installed - lol...

So, all in all it was fun and my Hack is still running great.

RE: FlashPAP - FlashAir WiFi SD card utility
Hello,I am very interested in FlashPAP.
I am using the FlashairIII.
I installed the FlashPAP,but the FlashPAP does not work.
In particular,When I press the button "Scan FlashAir SD card" to recognize the flashair, it displays the date folder is in the date column .
When you press the button , the pie chart is beginning increased from 0%, you quit with 70% position .
It would close the window of FlashPAP.
Looking at the date folder your PC, the file has become empty is not at all copied .
However, the file of the setting folder are copied have been updated date .
It is executed many times FlashPAP will become a phenomenon like the one above .
Please tell me how is to execute correctly .

If you are getting any files correctly, then it is connecting. You say it stops at 70% or you stop it at 70%?

It should run to 100% and then say done.

It will pause often while copying the files. Sometimes it takes a while to start up again. Let it complete on it's own and do not stop it.
