Hi John
I've been kinda hibernating with a bit of a downturn for me ... and I cannot get the email to send despite trying several times ... so trying it this way, so sorry

Kath has directed me to you about oxi meters and windows 7

I have a borrowed oxi m and my netbook running windows 7 and it  does not have a disc drive so I downloaded as per the manual from the website ...

and of course I cannot get it to get data

could you talk me from scratch please?

kindest regards Jacks

Hi John,

It's nice to have you as a friend on this site. I'll email you when I feel better. I have suddenly developed a rotten cold etc and having a mask on when you want / need to sneeze and cough is absolutely wonderful!!? (as you probably know!). This is probably the first day I've taken off work for a year, I feel so terrible. Kath gave me your email address as well. Mine is rorokemp@live.com  Stay well. Rosemary
