sleepyhead help needed
I have been on cpap for about 6 weeks now. I had to send my data card in last week. I got it back today. I put it in my machine so it could transfer the info to the card. I then put it in my computer and tried to transfer the data to sleepyhead but it's showing nothing for that time period. I don't know if they sent me back the same card or not. How can I get the info to transfer?

RE: sleepyhead help needed
I'm not as familiar with Respironics machines -- sorry, but I think the answer is that you cannot get it back.
If it is like the resMed machines, and I believe it is, then the data is only recorded when the card is in place during a session.
Simple compliance data like hours used per day might be kept in the machine; but not the more useful data you're accustomed to seeing in SleepyHead.

The preventative measure would have been to put another SD card during the time your regular card was away.
A 2GB class 2 SD card would do fine. Then you could have imported your data from the "backup" card before swapping the primary card back in.

If you put a blank card into your machine, you'll get all your data, except for the raw breathing data that shows on the Flow Rate graph.

This does work because I just formatted an SD card and did it. 8-)

One thing to note is that the machine uses 2GB SD cards. I don't know if a larger card would work and I don't know if an SDHC card would work.

A smaller card will work. I just popped in a 512M SD card and it worked perfectly.

First it says the card is corrupted and it wants to format it (say "OK"). This takes a while to complete. Then it transfers the data, then it's done.

Please let me add something, i learned from selling Linux-based devices using SD-cards:
SD and SDHC cards are NOT compatible. Even if they look and taste identically.
The trick here may be, that files on SD cards up to 2GB may be accessed by the more or less "free" FAT32 file system.
Creating files larger 4GB need an "NTFS" file system. That's some Microsoft thing, they invented with Windows-NT. It's still full of copyrights, lefts and straights. So manufacturers who avoid license fees will go for for the FAT32 thingy and are bound to the <4GB limit (what will result in using a max. 2 GB card).

Also (like mentioned above) the SDHC cards are not working in pure "SD" slots. They're internally very different organized to regular SD cards.

That's the reason, why 2 GB SD cards are still in production and used in nearly every device that uses some OpenSource software Wink

Just my 2-(EUR)-cents
