When I save the SleepyHead data in the computer in a file... when trying to attach to a post, the forum says that I can't load that type of file. What a pain!!
Unless someone can come up with a solution, I'm going to have to try this at my office on Monday.

OK, once again.

What version of Windows?

Read the link I've posted on sharing the data. You need to put the SD card zip file on dropbox or something similar, and post the URL (link) here.

Does left click select the card and highlight it? Then, if right click doesn't bring up a menu. hit shift-F10 or the menu key on the keyboard. The menu key is usually between alt and ctrl on the bottom right, but not all keyboards have them. You should get a menu.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

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

My condolences on the Windows 8. I've heard quite a bit of good stuff about Windows 10. The free upgrade to win 10 might be worth it.

I'm usually pretty scared of updates, but that one might be worth it.

I know Win8's user interface is horrid. Maybe there's something about win8 that makes right click not work, but I really would expect it to work.

I think you hit the nail on the head...Windows 8 bites!

I got an idea, maybe I can print and scan some important data and then attach for your viewing. What do you think?
I'm going to the beach now and get salty... I'll be back late tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks, LOUIS

Ok... here's the scan of the sheet that the sleep doctor gave me of the Respironics software read on my August 20th visit.
What say you??
