Wireless SD Card to transmit data to Desktop Computer?

Is there a way to change configuration or options in ResScan so that it will read from a folder? If not, even if you can get the files from the wifi card to the computer, it seems you would then have to copy the files onto a SD card in the computer in order to import into ResScan, if you wanted to use ResScan instead of or as well as SleepyHead.

Since FlashAir works as a stand alone Wireless LAN access point, FlashAir embedded devices are able to both send files to and receive files from each other. Buy 2 FlashAir cards. Leave one in the S9 AND have one in your desktop computers sd reader slot.

Think about it.

Very similar concept to what Herb mentioned above (copying it to a local sd card always plugged into his PC) but taking out the PC for the communication piece. I understand your theory, but do not understand how you plan on getting the cards to "replicate" to each other. What are you using to base your "flashair devices are able to send files and receive files from each other" theory on? I must have missed that in product description somewhere.

I doubt that we have any facility on the SD Card to write a script for the various functions, but it is possible that there is a Linux system that that can be accessed and used for scripting.

My plan was to put the script on the PC, to pull from the (single) WiFi SD Card (in the S9) to a standard SD Card in the PC.

...and base is on file change date to overwrite so we would only pull newer files.

I am considering (as a second cut) having the script look for a "stable" date on the current file before pulling -- this way it would notice when you turn the machine off and just sync then.

The first version would probably just work manually by the user explicitly starting it. It might not be worth the time and complexity to create a scheduled task or a daemon to check the card automatically.

It would be nice to just get up and ignore the whole thing until you wanted to view your data it would already be on the card local to the PC and ready to load.

My tests of this are not quite complete. Even though my new AirCard arrived on Friday, my schedule was full all weekend with a major incident at work and a video shoot project personally so there wasn't enough time.

It does look like the AirCard isn't going to work since it requires adding a top level directory and the Resmed machine software unreasonably refuses to accept any other files or directories -- at least at the root level.

I suspect the power for the SD card comes from the S9, as it does for any standard SD card. So as long as the power is on the S9 he can talk to it.. turn it off.. and it cannot.

Hun, are you responding to my last message?

Yes, the power comes from the device (S9, camera, whatever).

Problem is the AirCard needs it's config file (and directory) and the S9 will not accept ANYTHING (at least in the root) extra, not a file nor a directory.

We might be dead in the water; I am trying like mad to think up some scheme for tricking one or both of them (AirCard or Rescan) but haven't hit on even a good idea yet.

Due to that "power thing", I can't even put it in the machine, get it on the net, pull it briefly and delete the config file (without the Aircard OS going down) then put it back into the machine.

I guess that would be something to TRY, but it's pretty certain the AirCard is going down the instant it is removed from the machine.

Ideas?


EDIT:

Wait a MINUTE:

Why can't we:

1) Put the AirCard in the S9 with the configuratin
2) The S9 will bitch and offer to format it
3) We'll reach over the net and delete the configuration directory and contents
4) THEN let the S9 format it
5) S9 is happy, and we only have to put the config back if we take the card out of the machine OR turn off the power.

Problems:

#3 -- I don't know if we can delete files and directories across the net.

#5 -- DOES THE S9 FULLY POWER OFF DURING THE DAY? If so, we lose our network again.

It's starting to look like the AirCard is NOT going to work. Disappointing.

Personally I just grab the card, read in the data (archive it) leave only the last day on the data card, and put it back in..
If you put it back with no data in the DATALOG folder, the unit puts the last day back on the card (no detail). You can accidently overwrite good detail data:-( when you reload the next time, if you overwrite your data.

So for me I do not see it as a gain to go out and buy a wireless SD card.

I can use the exercise going upstairs to the bedroom to get the card and take it back up:-) burn at least .1 calories:-)

Has anyone tried it on a PR machine yet ? I haven't ordered a air card yet , was waiting to see if anyone else figured it out.

Bumping this because I'm very curious if there's been any advancement in the last year or so. It'd be nice if I didn't have to rotate out cards.

Take a look in the software forum or post your question there.
