Replacement SD Card
#1
Replacement SD Card
Hello All,

I acquired a used S9 as a back/travel machine that does not have an SD Card.

Is there any reason why I can't use a high quality (samsung) generic SD Card or MicroSD card with an Adapter?

I have a few lying around, but I'm new to the S-9 and didn't know if I would cause problems with an "Unapproved" SD Card.

Thanks in advance!

Dr.Bones

Hi drbones - Welcome

Any SD card, 2Gb to 32Gb, will work.

Does a larger card give more resolution to data?  Or, just more history before data is overwritten?  

Thanks,
John

Neither. The Resmed S9 was designed to use 2Gb of storage before overwriting the oldest data first. The A10 uses a 4Gb card with the same protocol for the data. I have no idea about Philips machines.

RE: Replacement SD Card
I've read that the Resmed S9 card only holds either one week or one month of flow data before it overwrites - depending, I think, on when it was made. So you need to upload data fairly regularly.

The AS10 holds a year and a half of data on a 2 GB card before it approaches full. I retired mine before it got completely full, so I don't know if it then starts to overwrite old data
