Learning Curve..
..(and running off the road)...

One month tomorrow on Mizz Crackers' CPAP.... I have been in search of a way to read the SD card, and get the info into SH.

After one real good guy board member suggested that most laptops have a card slot...(my 'antique' desktop does not), and remembering that I had bought her a new laptop a few months back and Sho Nuff!!, there's a card slot in there!

Loaded the SH/Software into the laptop, popped a card into her machine, getting all excited that now we can really monitor what is going on, and the SW tells me that this particular machine only records 'hours of use' data...

Oh Sh....... Poop!!!

So yesterday I called the nice folks that I bought it from...Explained that I'm pretty ignorant about CPAP matters, and apparently bought the wrong machine...And guess what!...there's an upgraded one, that will do the proper recorded readouts, it's on the way (same day). When it gets here, I send the first one back to them for a full credit, and I only pay the difference in cost between the two....

Friends...ya just can't beat that kind of helpful service! I'd love to post who and where they are, but I'm unsure of a possible forum rule infraction...

But...I'm real sure that the second new CPAP will Supply her with just what she needs to get back on the road to better health. I also hear that it rains a lot in Spokane WA.

Best to all!

RE: Learning Curve..
You got real lucky there FL.
Keep us informed as to how things go.
BTW I use a device to read SD cards that connects to my PC via a USB Hub.. works ok.
REMBER.. to LOCK your SD card BEFORE you insert it in your computer. and UNLOCK it before you put it back in your CPAP machine.

RE: Learning Curve..
If the people you got the unit from are on the supplier list you can refer to them by their number. If not you can PM SS the name of the supplier and ask if he'll open a thread to add them to the list. We have a procedure in place for that too.

Great luck on getting the other unit, very good deal, all the best.

If everyone thinks alike, then someone isn't thinking.
Everyone knows something, together we could know everything.

You could simply say "Supplier #9" from the trusty-dusty Apneaboard Supplier List. That would work.

There ya go RG!! That's the one....

Can't say enough regarding their helpful service, and very reasonable pricing on all items CPAP related.

I might add that the person I mostly spoke and dealt with, I'm pretty sure, is the owner of company. A gentleman named Andrew...Gracious and generous to say the least.

You need supplies, or a new/upgrade machine, give these kind folks a look-up. You won't be sorry!

Hi FLcracker,
It's good to hear that you got such great service from your DME, (Durable Medical Equipment,) company.
Good luck to you and your wife, with the new machine.

RE: Learning Curve..
Not sure what machine your getting FL. If its a Resmed then everyone seems to say you need to lock and unlock the SD card.

If its a Respironics PRS1 machine you dont need to worry about locking the SD card.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
I'm sure you would agree with me if you have ever lost some data due to not locking the write capability to you card.
