Isn't there a Windows command to mount a directory as a drive?
It might be a powershell command...

Mongo, you get a gold star.
Here is the trick:
1. If your data directory is one word (e.g.: CardData) go to step 7
2. If your data directory is more than one word (e.g.: D:\Steve Resmed)
then in Notepad write:
3. Save the file as "pathname.cmd" or any name you can remember. . .just make sure the the file ends with a ".cmd".
4. Run the above file to obtain the DOS directory name.
D:\>pathname "D:\Steve Resmed"
The result is:
7. Issue the following command:
subst X: D:\STEVE~1 (use your directory name)
(Note: The drive letter is your choice. Don't pick a letter that is in use.)
8. The Steve Resmed directory is now aliased to drive X.
9. You can download the data directly into ResScan.
I tested this before I posted it, so I know it does work.
Good Luck and kudos to Mongo for making me aware of this command's existence.
OH!, I almost forgot; To remove the aliased drive letter, issue the command:
subst X: /D (again replace the "X" with the drive letter you chose.)
I copied the SD card data into a folder on the C: drive and then mapped it.
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 304D-60D6

ResScan does not find the drive that is created. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong please.
It is hit or miss in my experience. If the "drive" you are pointing to is not recognized as an external, it usually fails. Some have had good luck with substituting a folder for a drive but I have never been able to get it to work.
If you have Flashair, you have the original SD card that came with your ResMed machine. Put the ResMed SD card into your computer and have one of the utilities, SleepMaster or FlashPap, copy the flashair to your resmed SD card and then ResScan will read from that. If you do not have an SD card reader, they are cheap enough on amazon or eBay ~$5 US.
Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.
I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses.
I must be holding my mouth the wrong way. It worked for me before but not right now. . .Sorry!
It is my understanding that FlashPap just copies the contents of the FlashAir to a folder? Hence, one would need to copy them to SD card or thumb drive? I was trying to test things before my FlashAir arrives tomorrow. FlashPap has a control that says "Exit and Run Sleep Tracking Software." But won't an additional step be needed for ResScan?
Thanks for the help.
