Where to get SD card reader for PRS1 Bipap machine
#1
I'm completely ignorant about SD cards. The SD card that comes with my Philips Respironics System 1 Bipap machine has a part # on it and "by PNY" on the label.

The card does not fit correctly into the slot on my HP Pavilion laptop. I just got back from Staples after buying a "universal" card reader and it doesn't fit into any of those slots either.

Is this type of SD card considered a Micro SD, that I need an SD adapter for?

Is there some kind of adapter/reader for this card that I can use on my computer?

It should fit into any reader that accepts that kind of card. PNY is a regular card maker, not one specifically for Respironics.

Make sure you are putting the card in the correct way and in the correct slot. Usually that is text side up, exposed contacts side down.

If that still does not work, take the card to where you got the reader and tell them you need one for it and why doesn't the one you bought work.

A microSD is itty bitty, not the large, US quarter size of the SD cards.

I had one of those multi card reader, you need to use some elbow grease to make it work
On new laptop, S9 SD card fit into SD card slot, make a clicking sound when fully inserted and pop out when pushed in just like when insert card into the machine
