CPAP EQUIPMENT: ResMed VPAP S9, Quatro FX full face mask
SOFTWARE: ResScan version 5.4.1
I have just installed ResScan. Everything went fine and I did NOT download any of the three drivers offered during the install. Program opens fine and I created a patient file. I then locked my SD card and inserted it into an Epson printer with an SD slot. The printer is connected to my Windows XP PC via USB. The printer recognized the card and my PC shows the card as drive Z:\. I can see the data on the SD card when I click on it in Windows.
When I click "Download data" in ResScan I get a message saying "There are NO devices available" and "Connect a flow generator or data card and try again." There are no options I can find in ResScan to point it to this printer Z:\ drive.
Any thoughts on how to point ResScan to the SD card or opinions on why it is not "seeing" the SD card? Thank you!
You have to make sure the SD card on your printer is mounted as a logical drive on the local computer. I have never heard of a printer with an SD card but if it exposes the card on your local network you can mount it as a network disk drive. I don't know of ResScan could see it even then, though. All these hardware manufacturer software apps seem to be about five to ten years behind the trend.
For example I have several Ham radios and the programming software that comes with them seems to think we are all still using Windows XP.
SleepyHead can see a local logical drive if it will work for you. Otherwise you can get a reader for an SD card pretty cheaply these days.
The above is my opinion. It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.
I'm not sure about the printer card setup either, my laptop have an SD card slot and works fine or you can get separate SD card reader, keep it simple. Also, doesn't hurt to reboot the computer
Good luck and welcome aboard
