Invalid SD card after installing ResMed Software
#11
S9's have a problem if you used any Windows O/S greater than Win7 to read you SD card and you didn't have the card write-protected. You have 2 choices. 1. Let the S9 reformat your card. 2. Turn off the writing of system volume information removable devices and delete the system volume information on the card. Since the option #2 instructions are rather long, please make an instruction request post here and I'll be glad to provide them.

dry2015, I merged your two threads together since it's the same question. I also moved the thread here to the Software Support Forum.

Thanks.

This happened to me almost a year ago and I had to obtain and use a new SD card. I would appreciate a copy of your option #2 instructions. My email address is Bernie@elp.rr.com. Many thanks for your help.

Bernie,
I'm posting it here for anybody else that may want it and will PM you the same instructions.

Plan A: Using the Group Policy Editor

  1. Press the Windows Key + R combination, type : "gpedit.msc" (without the quotes) in Run dialog box and hit Enter to open the Local Group Policy Editor.
  2. Navigate to: Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Search
  3. In the right pane, look for the setting named "Do not allow locations on removable drives to be added to libraries" and double click on it.
  4. A new widow will appear. Click on "Enabled" and then click "Apply" followed by OK.
  5. Close the Local Group Policy Editor and restart the machine, plug in the USB and plug out. You’ll be no longer facing the trouble.

Plan B: Using REGEDIT to modify the DisableRemovableDriveIndexing key
If your edition of Windows does not have the Group Policy Editor, do the following:
  1. Press Windows Key + R combination, type: "regedit" in Run dialog box and hit Enter to open the registry Editor.
  2. Navigate to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows
  3. In the left pane of this location, right click over Windows key and select New -> Key. Name the newly created sub-key as Windows Search. Now select the same sub-key and come to its right pane as shown in image above. Right click in the blank space, select New ->DWORD Value.
  4. Name the newly created DWORD as: DisableRemovableDriveIndexing.
  5. Double click on the new DWORD name to obtain a value setting window.
  6. Enter the value data of: 1 (one). The base setting doesn't matter. Press "OK".
  7. Exit the Registry Editor and reboot you computer.



Edit:
For those of you faint of heart in modifying your registry, I've created a script to make the modifications. After downloading the file extract the Disable and Enable scripts. Select the Disable and right-click, selecting Merge

Disable/Enable System Volume Writes
