I just received my new System One BiPap Auto yesterday. I have been able to upload the data to SleepMapper, but when I try to upload to SleepHead it does not transfer the data. I am following the instructions as far as I can tell. Any help would be appreciated. I am using the iMac.

RE: Sleepyhead with Mac
First of all, you need to make sure to write-protect the SD card prior to inserting it into the SD card drive on your Mac.

Second, open the SH software to the main screen and scroll the icons on the right side of the window until "Import" shows up and click it.

Third, navigate to the SD card drive and click choose. Your screen will look similar to this one.

Your data should import successfully.

OK, I did NOT write protect it when I first inserted it into the Mac. I have also loaded the program on my Windows 7 Laptop and it uploads correctly. Will the System One make sure it has the correct format when I put it back in the machine? What action do I need to take since I did not write protect it.

Thanks, Bob

RE: Sleepyhead with Mac
I,m not sure if you need to install the patch for 60 series machines using Mac or if the patch been already incorporated with the latest version of SleepyHead.

Which version of SleepyHead for the Mac are you using? The last stable release for the mac is still 0.9.2-beta. There is also an unstable release version 0.9.4-beta for those who want to test it, but who are also willing to deal with an unstable build.

Also, for System One users, it is NOT critical to write protect the SD card. The System One doesn't seem to care about the extra files that the Mac writes to the card. It's a good idea to get into the habit of write protecting the card, but it is not critical.

For Resmed S9 users, however, it is CRITICAL to write protect the card since the S9 will complain about the card and insist on erasing all the data if it sees any new files written by the computer's operating system.

If you are using SH v0.9.2-beta on the Mac and you want to use it with the Series 60 System One machines, you still need to install the patch, which can be found at
https://s3.amazonaws.com/thefreemanclan....pyHead.dmg

If you are using the unstable SH v0.9.4-beta on the Mac, you don't need the patch, but you may run into issues because the release is not yet considered stable.

I am using SH v0.9.2-beta. As far as the patch, how do you install it? When I go to the link it only shows a few lines of code.

I am not sure if anything happened to your SD card, but the SleepyHead Users Guide stated that you needed to write protect the SD card before inserting it into the Mac. Something about the space/time continuum....

RE: Sleepyhead with Mac
By default, Mac has a service called Spotlight that indexes all the external volumes (drives), and writes out an index directory to the volume.

If you want to prevent Mac from writing to the drive, go to Spotlight preferences, and add "/Volumes" to list of places not to be indexed. This will prevent Spotlight from writing to your SD card.
