Lock SD card when importing into OSCAR?
Lock SD card when importing into OSCAR?
When I used to use Sleepyhead and a Phillips ASV, I was always warned to lock my SD card so Sleepyhead would not write data to my card and harm it or confuse my machine. I know that that small plastic switch can break if used too much.

With the newer OSCAR software and my ResMed ASV, do I have to bother locking the card with each import? I would love to avoid that step. I do also note that the OSCAR software does not warn me to lock the card.

Can you advise? Cheers.

RE: Lock SD card when importing into OSCAR?
The only time you need to lock the card is when you are using a ResMed S9 CPAP machine on Windows. That is because Windows writes a file to the card and the S9 machines then thought the card was corrupted and needed to be reformatted, thus wiping all data off the card.

Specifically, you do not need to lock the card from your AirCurve 10 machine.
