I have a new Resmed Aircurve bipap-auto. Just a few nights so far.
I also installed the resmed 5.4 software. I've only downloaded the SD
card once so far. From what I remember, you want to start the Resmed
software Before you plug in the SD card. I think there is some weird driver
issue with the ordering of things. I think if you plug in the card first (before
starting the 5.4 software), you get some standard Windows driver that gets ResMed confused.
I had a S9 Auto for a few years and I did manage to corrupt an SD card once.
Now I write protect the card before reading it on my PC. If you forget to un-write protect
it before inserting it back into the S10 machine, it will give you a warning message that
the card is write protected. On the S10, there is a little tiny LED right above the SD card

periodically to report basic statistics which you can view if you have a "www.resmed/myair account.
Somebody asked about Medicare compliance data. I assume this works like the S9.
There is some amount of memory internal to the machine (aside from the SD card).
The Medicare compliance data is stored there as well as on the SD card. When my SD
card failed, my sleep lab was able to get a bunch of data out of the machine itself. Don't
know what they did as the tech just took the machine and brought it back with a written
report for the doc. The SD card can record some amount of high resolution data which doesn't
go in the machines internal memory. One of the problems is that if you change the time
(like when chaning from summer to winter time), that causes the compliance data to be
