OSCAR Doing Weird Things Recently

OSCAR Doing Weird Things Recently
Up until a couple of days ago, OSCAR was doing its duty and faithfully reporting my data each morning as it should.
Yesterday, I put the SD card in my computer and there was no data. This has happened once before and it was due to the fact that I hadn't seated the card properly in my ResMed machine. 

So, last night I double-checked that the card was seated properly and went to sleep. This morning I put the SD card in my computer and receive the same message that there is no data to report. However, when I click on Saturday nights date, the data that wasn't there Sunday morning is now available. 

I'll give it a couple more nights to see if this still happens, but has anybody ever experienced this weirdness?

SD cards can go bad in a heartbeat. You might try replacing it with a new one.

RE: OSCAR Doing Weird Things Recently
If I replace the card, will my machine write any previous data to the card, or do I need to do some type of transfer?

My first thought was that the card was full. I know that's not likely, but there is plenty of room left.

The machine is apparently writing data to the card, just not on a daily basis...I think?

RE: OSCAR Doing Weird Things Recently
Since SD cards can go bad instantly, you should maintain a backup copy of all its data on your PC. If you follow this procedure, then if and when you use a new card, all your history is archived on the PC for safe keeping and any data lost on the card is meaningless.

Is your clock set right after the time change?

Yeah, I thought of that too. Especially since later in the day, I reinserted my SD card in the machine just troubleshooting and put it back in my computer and the data was there. So, early morning when I normally check OSCAR....no data. Later in the day....normal data.  Huh
 
So I thought what if the time change has some effect on when the data is recorded to the card. I changed the time on the ResMed and had already bought a new SD card. 

I forgot to use the old card to see if the time change made any difference, but the new card recorded all the data normally. Tonight I will put the old card back in to see if there's any difference.

Hi upsman,
I just had a weird experience, somewhat similar.  Sunday, due to the DST change, I left the machine powered up but idle for several hours, so I could then set the clock back an hour.  I had pulled the SD card while the machine was still powered up, which I normally don't do.  I had waked up once for a bathroom break, and when I imported the Saturday night data (OSCAR 1.2.0), only the 1st session was showing.  I checked the machine's sleep report, and it had recorded the whole night, as did MyAir.  I let it go and waited for Monday.  After importing on Monday, the Sunday data imported and appeared normally.  I then checked back to the Saturday data.  Both sessions now appeared properly.  I had not attempted a 2nd import on Sunday, which might have fixed the issue - don't know.  Nor did I do any other procedure like Rebuilding.  It's a mystery.

RE: OSCAR Doing Weird Things Recently
re time change: I"m still using 1.2.0 rc-1 so this may or may not apply to the current release. mid afternoon nov 2 I set my resmed machine time back an hour after a 16 minute nap. I was a little surprised it allowed it after using it briefly before changing the time, but figured I just don't remember how it worked in other years. after downloading from the sd card today nov 3 oscar was different than the machine display in nearly every category. purged the day, downloaded from the sd card a second time and oscar and machine display match up. to pick just usage time, the machine reported 8h24m, oscar first reported 6h36m, a difference of 1h48m, clearly not accounted for by the 16 minute nap. in 6 sessions, the 4th was 1h44m, close but no cigar. no combination of session times adds to 1h48m. it's all fine now, just reporting odd behavior.

That does sound very similar. 

I don't think the SD card is the issue, but I'll post back tomorrow after a night with the old card in.

Well, since nothing else was changed except the time on my machine, I would say that was the issue.

I used the original SD card again last night and the data was there this morning as usual.
