I have installed the latest version of Rescan but I cannot work out how to get the info from the data card into the PC. My laptop doesn't have a built in card reader so I got one today that reads a 2G Sandisk. [I will have my S9 on Tuesday - today is Saturday] The computer recognises the card reader and reads the blank disk from within the file manager. When I open Rescan [4.03] I can load the examples and look at them but cannot work out how I will access the data card from within Rescan.
I have copied one of the example files to the data disk but that didn't help. I tried all the options under the file menu such as open and import but nothing.
Do I need to install a card reader driver? Windows recognises it at present.
Selecting download simply says no flow generator or data card present.
If I'm understanding right, the SD card you are using hasn't been in an S9 yet - am I right?
If so, the SD card hasn't been formatted right and does not contain the info and files ResScan is looking for to identify the machine and data. When you get your S9 and put the SD card in it the S9 will format it and set up it up with the proper info (machine model, serial number etc.).
When you select to download data ResScan looks for the particular files that the S9 provides.
Thanks jg that does makes sense. Is that the same for sleepyhead? Does SH look for a Resmed formatted card?
Also does the S9 recognise a non formatted card and format same in a reasonably simple manner?
