SD Card for experimental
I want to test some different ways to use my CPAP devices.
Do anyone know if the original SD Card has some drive routines info for the CPAP maschine?
Or I can put in a new standard SD Card for these testings.

RE: SD Card for experimental
you can use the original card ... the machine write data on the card
but if your clinic did something to the card locked the original setting on the card than you need to use a new card
reformat the original card might work but might put ypu in strife with clinic cpap police

RE: SD Card for experimental
PRS1 cards can be "locked" such that you can't change the settings on the machine. You can take the card out and change the settings, but when you put it back in, the original settings will return.

Not all cards will be locked. I don't think a lot of DMEs or doctors lock them.

You can use a standard SD card in your machine, and then change the settings as you want. You can also format the original SD card on your PC and you'll be in control again.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
