I downloaded sleepy head, but I need help! How do I download the info from the SD card? I have a macbook Air. I need pretty specific help- not very Tech savy.

RE: I downloaded Sleepyhead- need help with Macbook
Hi Carolynn, I use a MacBook Air with Sleepyhead. You have a different model CPAP but I assume it works about the same as our model. The SD card in the CPAP machine can be inserted either directly into the SD card slot on the right hand side of your MacBook Air or you can put the SD card into a USB adapter and then put the adapter into one of your USB ports.

BEFORE doing either of those things, however, you should lock the SD card by sliding the little plastic slider to the lock position. [[ And then be sure to UNLOCK the SD card before putting it back into the CPAP machine.]]

Then you open Sleepyhead and follow the directions. Was not sure how far you had gotten into this process. Let me know if you need more about using the software itself.

You need to be sure you do this or when you insert the SD card into your Macbook Air, you will format your SD card and lose ALL your data.

The SleepyHead Users Guide gives some additional guidance. You can find it HERE.

I believe it works with the entire S9 line. It worked with an Escape so it would certainly work with an Elite.

You will get a message on the S9 screen that your SD card is write protected if you forget to do this. Serious. I know. I tried it. Not on purpose either.
The problem will arise if you fail to read the display when you put the SD card back into the S9 unit. I make a habit of checking the display whenever I insert the card - just so there are no surprises.

thanks for the help.... first, I did put the SDcard in without locking it, but didn't do anything except eject it to change it... hope that didn't mess it up..
next, the instructions on the screen that came up say.....
"Please Import Some Data
SleepyHead is pretty much useless without it.
It might be a good idea to check preferences first,
as there are some options that affect import."
First import can take a few minutes."

so I clicked on "SD card/ Import data" icon on the right.. and "sleephead quit unexpectantly" screen came up.. Now what?

Restart SleepyHead and try the import again. Sorry but I did it for the first time so long ago that I don't remember the screens that came up. I'm using a MacBook Pro. All I do remember is that I didn't have any problems. My recollection is that you have to tell SleepyHead where to import the data from and on subsequent imports, it will ask if you want to import from "The Usual" or some other location.

RE: I downloaded Sleepyhead- need help with Macbook
THANKS! Well, I got the data imported and a lot of colorful graphs, but I really have no idea what all it means. I'm tired now, though, so I am going to go to bed and look at it all tomorrow! My numbers look good, noleaks..
Again, I am so THANKFUL I pushed for this machine..

SleepyHead's wiki has some good information on not just how to use the program, but what some of the terms mean.

Then there is our wiki:
