I have res-scan on my laptop. How can I get the data from my machine to be transmitted into my software?

G'day squareknot, welcome to Apnea Board.

The easiest way is to take the SD card out of your CPAP, lock it, and inert it in the card reader of your computer. If the computer doesn't have a built-in reader you'll need to purchase one from your friendly local electronics shop. Don't forget to put the card back in the CPAP once you're finished, and unlock it before you put it back. Locking the card is just a precaution to prevent data corruption by the computer. Some operating systems write an index file to the card, and some CPAPs (mainly Resmed S9) throw a wobbly when they see a "foreign" file.

The alternative approach is to get a Toshiba Flashair card with built-in wifi. Two of our members have written apps to transfer the card data: see here:

One drawback to ResScan is that it looks only for a drive to find the data. Using a Flashair wireless SD card, you would need to partition part of your computer's hard drive, creating a new drive letter. With the remote downloading software mentioned above, you could then copy the SD card's contents to this drive and ResScan would then be able to read it. Just remember that no other data can reside on the drive.

An alternative would be use SleepyHead and then you could just create a directory on your existing system, without jumping through all the hoops.

I hope this may help.

FlashAir replaces the ResMed SD card in your machine. You put the ResMed SD card from your machine in your computer. Copy the data from FlashAir directly to the ResMed SD card. That's what I do and it works a peach. Then if you need to provide the SD card to the DME or doc you just take the ResMed card with you instead of handing over the FlashAir.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

That's good to know. Hadn't heard that before. I guess you can always old school the Flashair card and manually remove from the A10 and put into the computer for ResScan when needed, and go wifi the rest of the time with SH.
