Not sure what to do!

I think he was talking about the clock radio. Pull out the battery and you'll know if the powers out.

RE: Not sure what to do!
Sorry, Larry, I should have quoted your post: "I thought of the clock but it has a battery in it" -

That's assuming the it uses regular AC power most of the time, and the battery only during a power failure. My clock radio (very old) has a battery that always goes flat before a power failure. My Ikea clock only has a battery, it would just stop if I took the battery out. Maybe yours is that way, too.

I was sort of joking, of course, because I hate resetting my clocks after a power failure. I'b be happier if the backup battery actually worked.

RE: Not sure what to do!
Larry,
Some clocks use household AC power for normal operation and have a battery for power-out backup. I think pholynyk had this in mind when he made the post.

Edit: Talking about being late to the party. Just ignore me.

RE: Not sure what to do!
Walla Walla,

Oh, thanks!  Yes, that would work except resetting the time is a major PITA.  For some stupid reason you have to open it up and go through a bunch of button pushes.  I have to look through my junk, though - maybe I have another old one I could use.

RE: Not sure what to do!
Well, I erased (cleaned) the contacts and I don't think the power went out last night and I had to remove and replace the FlashAir to get it to work today.  I guess I will have to do that every day.  Maybe I could replace it?  Of course I have forgotten how to set it up...

RE: Not sure what to do!
I've had to replace one before.  Insert your current card in your PC.  Make a folder, naming it something like "SD_Card".  Copy the entire contents of your current card to this folder.  This will provide a two-fold backup. First, it will have all the current data that is on your card.  Second, it will copy the WiFi config file in the SD_WLAN folder.   When your new card arrives, just copy the contents of this folder to it.  You'll be good to go and your CPAP won't know the the difference.

Another thought; Look at the STA_RETRY_CT parameter in the SD_WLAN/CONFIG file.  It should be set to "0" (zero).

Red,

I have a Mac, not a PC.  Frankly, I wish I'd never switched.  Even with the stroke I know how to do this on a PC but not on this Mac.  I assume you think I should get a new card, right?

Also, this sounds stupid but how do I check STA_RETRY_CT?

I use the term PC referring to the hardware.  A Mac is a PC that uses a different OS than a Windows PC.   My instructions are valid regardless of the OS you're using.  This will work on a Linux, Mac, or Windows OS.

Only if you can easily afford another.

With the SD card inserted and mounted on your PC, use your text editor to look at the CONFIG file located in the SD_WLAN folder  It should look like this: STA_RETRY_CT=0.

I know what you are saying, Red, but I can't seem to get it.

Ok.  I am using TextEdit as my editor.  When I put the FlashAir card in, it shows as No_Name.  The opening directory shows the subdirectoried DATALOG, DCIM, and SETTINGS.  The files are Identification.crc, identification.tgt, and STR.edf.  I would guess that SETTINGS would have config but it doesn't.  I don't know what to do next.

I think there is some secret trick to showing more subdirectories but I don't know what it is.  Thanks.
