Do you have the smartcard reader that connects to your computer by USB?  I used a Mako DT3500 reader back in the day.  It's been a few years since I had to do this, so I can't say if encore lost the ability to read the smartcard, but it used to work.  There is also an EncorePro software on the forum.   Not to flog this but, maybe it's time to update the machine?

I'll check if I still have the old EncoreViewer program I bought in 2008, but wow, I don't know that it will run on a modern computer. You can probably use your EncoreBasic, but just need the driver for the smartcard reader.

Can you find a multi-card reader and copy the files from the SDHC to the Smart Card

Both Me and My wife use cpap machines. I gave her my older machine when I got a new one(because she didnt want to spend more money) and not to mention my old machine still works fine. Hers is a Remstar Auto M series which uses a Respironics Encore Pro Smartcard. Mine on the other hand is Phillips Respironics System One which uses Sd Media. The software that I have downloaded and installed is encore Basic which reads info off of my SD. Maybe the smartcard is bad but in my dealings with smartcards that don't happen that often.Her machine was beeping and would'nt work so we bought a new smartcard and now it works. Just because it was beeping might be the capacity of the smartcard had been reached and needs to be cleared. till now i had no way to do that. I have a SCR331 card reader and the drivers are installed correctly so there is no issue there.

It is my understanding that the Encore software will not work with just any card reader it looks for a certain brand and model.  I picked up an Mako Infineer DT3500 smart card reader since it was the suggested one to use with the software and have no problems reading my card.  If you click on the Supplier List, a few of the suppliers carry the reader.   Good luck!

The SCR331 card reader will not work with Encore. You will need the Mako DT3500 and drivers. Better yet, don't you think it's about time to update your wife's auto CPAP? That machine is now 10 years old and at end of life. Keep it as a backup, but find a new or lightly used machine to replace it sooner than later.

Reading James's post carefully, he says that he is using Encore Basic software. I had an M series and Basic worked fine using the Mako card reader. I think Sleeprider is correct in saying that the SCR331 card reader is the problem. By the time you buy a card reader you can get the lady a slightly used System One and save yourself the aggravation of trying to make the card reader work.
