if you do find a way to use the card as well, there is no need with the respironics 560 (and most other respironics models) to lock the SD card when transferring data to a computer. The machine will not care.

RE: New CPAP User
I talked to the Tech today. It looks like I have found a work around. As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts; "The SD card was in the machine when it was removed from the box. It was taken out and a modem was plugged into the SD card slot." It appears that the CPAP machine holds the data in memory, so I can unplug the modem, plug in a SD card, use the machine for one night and the machine will write all of the data to the SD card.

the detailed data will only show up for the period of time that the SD is in the machine. there is other data, though, that will copy over to the card. it will give you what you need for an overview of your therapy.

Are you 100% sure that the card isn't in the machine?

I have a 460P with a modem and an SD card, the card and the modem connect to different slots on the back of the machine. The card goes into a slot that's right below where the modem connects, it's one of those that "click" in when you put it in - it doesn't stick out very much. Unplug the power from your machine, pull the modem off carefully and look at the back of the machine and see if the card is there. If it is just push it in and let go, it should pop out.

Yes, 100% sure. The SD card is replaced by this:

Right, I have the same thing! If you look closely at the modem itself, right above where the connector is is an open space. Then look at the back of the xPAP device where the modem would fit and find that same space is where the SD card goes. Here's a picture of mine with an arrow pointing at the SD card (it's in the slot):

I have the exact same thing Lexington. The SD card does not have to be removed for the modem to work. The tech apparently believes something else.

MB; I'm not sure that I understand exactly what you are saying. The REMstar Auto 560P only has one card slot and the modem, as pictured above, plugs into that slot. I see no additional card slots on the modem.
