well first off you will need the OneTouch Data cable and make sure that it drivers is installed. I tried to use the USB Carelink wireless thing to upload my minilink, but it would not work. so you have to use the cable. if you don’t have a cable you can order one:
then once you have all that set up, you can be able to upload the link meter’s results into minimed’s carelink online.
the carelink online will guide you as to when to plug in the meter to the computer and whether or not to turn the meter on.
it is usually best to plug the meter to the cable first, before pluging the cable to the computer.
if you are using the link meter with your pump though, it may not be necessary to upload the meter itself as all your results from your meter will be stored on your pump, and so you can just upload the pump by itself.
do you already have the Carelink USB wireless upload device to go with your pump? if not you can order one from minimed by first logging in to the Carelink online site, and then clicking the “Carelink USB” link at the bottom right hand corner of the screen… this will direct you to sign in to the minimed store (make sure you have your store account set up first) …and then the carelink USB device will show up in your shopping cart, just proceed with the check out to obtain it for free. … it is really great to use and simple. otherwise you can do it the old fashioned way and upload your pump via the paradigm BD meter and cable. good luck!
