SD Card Full

Postby stevez on Mon Oct 09, 2017 11:52 am

My Dreamstation machine's SD card is full. About a week ago I started getting a message that it's full. I have searched here and it seems I can get a replacement at Walmart among other places. Kind of surprised since I just started in May of this year. I've downloaded to Sleepyhead several days, but think I need to keep a current SD card to take to the doctors office during my visits. Does is seem normal to be full this early?

I have been using the same 2mb SD card in my ResMed for over 3+ years...I doubt that yours is full.

unless you have an old sd card that carries say 256 mb of storage, i'd say it's a little soon. heck, i think even 256 would last longer. don't know off hand how big my card is, but have been using it for more than a year without filling it up.

never heard of one getting full

what size is it ?

how long have you used it ?
they should go years not months and some never fill up as they eventually overwrite old data

was it empty before you started using it?

does your pc confirm it is actually full?
your xpap could be wrong with its claim.

or the card could be defective and has little usable ram due to defects.

I have had a dream station for over a year and a half and my card isn't full. Mine has a 8MB card in it. I had to replace my SD card after about 6 mos. because one of the contacts got damaged. It still worked but a contact was lose. I just copied the data from the old card to the new and its been working ever since.

No, it's not normal.

Can you go look into the SD card and in the folder with the machine serial number and look inside that folder and tell me how me P folders you have. The first one from May should be the P0 folder and then when it gets full it starts a P1 folder and when that gets full it starts a P3,...etc. How many P folders do you see?

I'm skeptical it's actually full. Is the CPAP machine telling you it's full? What does your PC say?

In my experience, SD cards are very unreliable, so maybe it's just a hardware or data glitch.

Thanks again all. I will take a harder look at it, in my PC and get the statistics on it. I used it daily since May 10th of this year, so really only 5 months. I have no idea if it was blank when I started, but I'll look. Someone asked, and yes, I get a flashing error message that my SD card is full, but I haven't tried reviewing it in Sleepyhead since then. I will and update my note here. I'll also go back to the vendor too if it appears it is full for some reason and/or not storing my new data. Thanks again.

Beforfe you toss it, if it has a problem, just try formatting it in your PC. That will erase all the data, so if there is anything you need, back it up first.

disk?

deviated septum has nothing to do with nasal mask ability
if you breathe okay without that mask then you can breathe just fine with it

No deviated septum has been mentioned, but my nasal mask does make my breathing more difficult. The pressure on the sinuses seems to make them swell some.

Re: SD Card Full

Well, finally got around to pulling the SD card and checking it out on my computer. It in fact is full. Sleepyhead has a warning, which I conveniently ignored, to "write-protect" the card before inserting. It says that some operating systems will try and copy files to that location and I'm guessing that's what it did. I have tried evaluating what's there, but so far haven't been successful at deleting much. I can't pull up a lot of data that it's storing, other than seeing my daily results which isn't taking up much room. I'm trying to find out how best to clean that disk up without deleting my actual history. Thanks.
