The reformat worked. The SD card is a 1GB from ResMed. Followed the suggestion of FAT32 and labeled it RESMED although it appeared to be initially FAT with no label.
The S9 did not reformat the SD. It simply created a DATALOG directory and dumped tgt, crc, etc files onto the SD card root.
Thanks for everybody's help. I suppose I am getting too cautious in my old age. Normally, I would have simply reformatted the SD and then fix whatever happens if things go south. This time, I thought it might be more prudent to ask first, before shooting.
Interestingly, though. I posted a similar query on the ResMed support site the same time I posted on this forum and I am still waiting a reply from them.
Again, thanks a lot.
SD card failed after two days. Was unable to reformat again using Windows XP. Called provided and asked for a new SD card which they sent after a little hemming and hawing.
New SD card has been working fine for several days now.
After a reformat, how do you get the data from the S9 copied to the SD?
My SD card crapped completely. Computer will not even read it. Have another card that I put in the S9 Elite, but it looks like I have lost a weeks worth of data. Does anybody know how else to get that data out of the machine. I have the attachment on the machine that sends the data to the provider of the machine using the cell phone network. Does anybody know if there is any way that you can read what is sent over the cell network.
The machine rewrites the "compliance" data, i.e. on/off times, back to the card. Some or all of the other data will not be restored.
