"Invalid SD card, erase card data?"

Post by Chuck Connors » Sat May 05, 2012 11:10 am

Any ideas on why I would see a display on my machine that states: "Invalid SD card, erase card data?" It prompts you to answer Yes or No. Thanks for any information you may have. -Chuck-

I don't have a Resmed, so I may be completely wrong. However, that to me indicates that the card has not seated properly. Click No, then remove and reinsert the card. Hopefully that will fix it.

And if that doesn't work, and you have already downloaded your data, just let it wipe the card. The machine stores all of your compliance data and will rewrite it to the card.

This happened to me once. Ever since, I've locked the sd card before reading it on my computer and unlocked it again before reinserting into S9. Never had a problem since.

This morning when I put my card into the computer my computer said the card needed to be formatted before using. I took the card out and went back to my BiPap, put the card in, turned the machine on a few seconds, turned it off, brought card back to the computer and it read it. Go figure. I got a scare the other day as my card was still in the computer and my cat wanted my attention and started chewing on the card. On the outter side I have cat teeth indents. Am so happy it still works. LOL

In Fall 2010 I would get that message when I downloaded data in to a copy of ResScan that was on a computer that was infected with some virus that I didn't know about at the time. Once I discovered the virus and removed it, I never had the problem again.

I had the same issue, so now I lock the card when I insert it into the card reader, and unlock it when I re-insert it in to my
S9 Autoset. :wink:

I always turn my s9 off before I remove the card and insert the card before I turn it on.

Happened to me when I moved the files to the computer instead of copying them, and then returned them. That by itself made the card invalid for the S9.

My S9 showed the same message "Invalid SD card, erase card data" last night for some reason. I removed and inserted the SD card again, and it worked! :)

This happened to me when I took my CPAP across country by air and I figured the x-ray process by TSA bummed out the card. Next time I will take out the card before I travel and leave it at home. The machine works with or without the card.
Somehow the sd card gets corrupt.

It only happened to me once. I don't do anything different and don't worry about it. If I'm putting the card in it's because I downloaded the data. Nothing to lose.

[Name deleted], who isn’t a rape viitcm, claimed in graphic detail that she was gang raped vaginally, orally, and anally by three men in a bathroom medical and police evidence never supported such a claim, yet Mike Nifong rail roaded three innocent boys, destroyed their reputations, and dragged this case out for almost a year. Ms. [Name deleted] swore under oath months ago that she was 100% sure that two of the boys raped her and 90% sure that the other one raped her. [Name deleted] destroyed the lives of innocent boys and Mike Nifong had a great part in the propogation of this rape lie. They both deserve prison time

The insertion in the BiPap was probably unnecessary. Taking the card out and putting it in again would fix an incompletely seated card.
