Rescan and SD Card
#1
My Sleep Doctor is seeing me virtually (over the Internet). I emailed the Dr a copy of my Resmed SD Card for his to read my sleep data. I provided it by Google Drive in 2 formats 1) just a copy of the SD and a Zipped version. The Dr says he is not able to import the data into his Rescan software. I am able to import the data into sleepyhead software (both types of copies) with no problem. Shouldn't the Dr be able to import the data as I described above.? Or is my Doctor technically challenged? He said they called Resmed Support and it can not be done.

Welcome

I would suggest installing ResScan on your own computer, and then "printing" the report yourself as a PDF. Then, you can email the PDF to your sleep doctor. You can find out how to get your own copy of ResScan in the Private Files and Links section of Apnea Board.

ResScan expects to see an actual SD card on a USB port as a drive with a drive letter assigned. Sleepyhead is superior in its method of importing data.

Not guaranteed to work, but the SD card data could be put into a windows folder; then one can mount that folder as a drive with a drive letter assigned. ResScan might accept it as a lettered drive.
(If that works, then, LOL, the doc is technically challenged.)

ResScan looks for a drive (SD card) to read the data from. In order for ResScan to read the data from a directory, you have to use some command line declarations to alias(map) the directory a drive letter. This will allow ResScan to see the data. Most people probably will never need to use this feature or know about it.. Here are the instructions:

Command line structure:
subst <driveletter>:\ <folder path>

Example (Map a directory to drive "M"):
subst M: c:\ResScanDataFile

To delete the link:
subst <driveletter>: /D

Example(Using the above example):
subst M: /D

Hope this helps.

having recently had some experience trying to import data from a variety of sources into resscan... here's some tips.

make sure you zip up the *ENTIRE* contents of the sd card, not just part, not just the directories or some of the data, resscan needs *every* file on the card.

on the other end, the data has to be dumped, *exactly* onto a usb drive, sd card, etc. resscan isn't built to look for data anywhere else (as someone mentioned earlier)

A SD card is about $5 or $10 - how about getting one, capping yours onto it and mailing it to the doctor?

I have been able to download data from the SD card to SleepyHead, but can only download the "Summary" and not the "Detailed Data" in Rescan. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi moemoenui, welcome to the forum
For detailed data, you'll need to select "all available data"
When you start the software, on the download page is a box where you can select to download Summary Data, Detailed Data, or All Data. See the screenshot (below) of that selection box. There is also a box on that same page you can check to SAVE your selection for all downloads:

Zonk,

I don't mean to be thick or anything, but I just downloaded and installed resscan ver 5.5.0.9285 and haven't found where / how to download the data.

I issued

subst K: c:\Medical\Sleep_Data

to point at my data for a drive but for whatever reason I don't get anything... Since I'm a neophyte at all of this apnea reporting stuff I'd appreciate a hand.. if you don't mind?

I've been using a CPAP since 1998.... so finally seeing what the real data helps me..

Thanks in Advance
