I bought Transcend adaptor to SC-card -> USB conventer. It costed about 10,- €. My customer experience is that it suitable and easy to use. I think that you can find those similair computer stuff at any computer store.

One thing to be careful of is that many external card readers (even the "better" ones) do not have the sensor to read the write-protect tab. So if this is an issue for you, check it out first. From a cpap point of view it is critical if you have a Resmed S9 series, not so much for other machines.

Okay for sure! I have a resmed airsense 10 autoset. Should I buy a specific one or just one off amazon?

Is this an issue for the resmed airsense 10 autoset?

You should be OK with the Airsense 10 series. And yes, one from Amazon is likely to be fine.

I have one that is probably about 10 years old and it works fine, whenever I have to use it.

By the way, please fill out your profile with the name of your machine and pressure settings and so forth.

I bought an $8 or so SD card reader from Wal-Mart or Best Buy about 6 months ago. It has a standard SD and micro SD slots and pops into the USB on the PC. IMO you're not going to need any fancier than that.

Mine is made by Insignia and looks like this:

RE: Purchasing external SD card reader
I bought a $3 one off ebay and it died in about 4 months but the next $ 3 one I bought 
has been doing fine for about 3 years.  At first when my first SD card reader died I
thought that the SD card was bad till I used another sd card to verify the reader was at fault.
