ResMed cards ARE usually SD.

I think in this case, the problem is on the PC end, not the S9 end.

I think the S9 generally works with SD or SDHC cards. SDXC cards are fairly rare unless you're buying a big, expensive card.

With SD cards, even if the card is the right "type", sometimes one device won't take it, and another device will.

RE: Newbie needing a little reading S9 SD Card
Can I use SDHC, mini SDHC, micro SDHC, or SDXC cards with S9 therapy devices?

No. Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) cards, as well as mini and micro SDHC cards, and SDXC cards, do not work with S9 therapy devices.

You can use the micro or mini as long as they are in a standard size adapter. And I know you can use up to 4 GB cards, because I used a 4 GB micro card in a micro-to-standard adapter in my PRS1 and later in my S9 Autoset. I can't speak for larger capacity cards. And the adapters eventually start getting flaky - bad connections - which is why I had to discontinue using the micro card.

The size of the standard card is 32 x 24 mm (1.26 x 0.96 in.). Full standard size cards with only one or two GB capacity are getting hard to find in stores. I had to go to three stores, and even then the smallest I could find was 4 GB. Everybody wants the micro cards these days for their phones, and at least 16 GB, so a lot of stores don't carry the older cards any more.

Also, the PRS1 and S9 Autoset will happily use a card from the other machine. The first time you insert the "foreign" card the machine will reformat it the way it wants it. The card I'm using in my S9 Autoset right now says "Respironics" on it. Don't tell ResMed, though. They'd probably say I voided the warranty or lightning will strike me dead or something. Too-funny

SDHC works just fine in my S9, made in 2010. Many others have reported similar results.

RE: Newbie needing a little reading S9 SD Card
Hi, new member here, also curious about the card - I just got an s9 escape auto, which I realize is not going to give me much info, but I put a 4 gb sd card into it and then put it in my pc and there was nothing on it. Is there a certain time of day that the data dumps?

You need software to view the information. Try ResScan or Sleepyhead, both available here:
http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Forum-Private-Files-and-Links

ResMed machines keep the detailed data for 7 days on the card then keeps basic data (usage, AHI, and I think pressure).

On the machine's screen, it only displays that night's data until noon, then it becomes the next day and that data is not viewable on the screen.

RE: Newbie needing a little reading S9 SD Card
what Paula said also you can still view data after noon in the advanced sleep report (press the two silver button for sec and turn the push dial)
shown here in pictures and video
http://www.apneaboard.com/resmed-s9-cpap-setup

the escape auto store
365 days of compliance data on the screen and on the card
AHI (no breakdown or central apnea detection) and pressure but no leak and no mask fit or smart start features
if not mistaken ... no efficacy data or high resolution data via the SD card
