oscar question [popup reminder when closing OSCAR]

oscar question [popup reminder when closing OSCAR]
when I close oscar a message flashes that begins: "don't forget to..." and then it's gone. What does this say? I assume it's reminding me to unlock the sd card.However I seem to recall that I used to have to eject the sd card on the pre oscar program. (sleepyhead?). Is that still necessary or can I jsut pull out the card reader? 
Thanks

RE: oscar question
That warning was intended for the Resmed S9 model.  You can disable that reminder in the Preferences section. (Preferences > General > General Settings: Show Remove Card reminder notification on OSCAR shutdown .)

RE: oscar question
Can I simply remove my card reader with the card or is there an eject procedure I'm supposed to follow?

All Operating Systems have some type of disconnection. Linux and Mac have an unmount command, and Widows has an Eject option.

RE: oscar question
I used to lock the card when using OSCAR and unlock it before inserting it into the machine. Then I read that it was only necessary for the S9. I have the S10. Now I keep it in the unlock position. I think that frequent manipulation adds a failure mode. If I had to replace the card, I would get one without the lock.

RE: oscar question
The lock on the card is nothing more than a piece of plastic. It is a signaling device for an optic sensor or microswitch in the card reader. A lot of the cheaper card readers don't have a write-protect sensor, thus its position doesn't mean a thing. Also, some O/S's have the option to ignore its position too. If the plastic slider should fall out, a piece of cellophane tape covering the lock area will work.
