the Braille note has a annoying problem if the compact flash card is left in the unit during a power on or reset if previously the system is frozen to reformat the cf cards while booting. this was not always clearly communicated to new users. I nearly let the system reformat my cf card but chose the no option but it does not always give you the choice either. I am unaware if this is a problem in the pacmate or maestro or braille sense products. I always now unplug the cf before a boot of any kind if I can. Thank you!

I don't think this happens very often, and I doubt that the BN actually ate the card's contents. Could the card have gotten zapped with electricity? You're the first person I've ever heard say that their flash card corrupted on them. I hope you can get back your class notes. My old Braille 'n Speak 2000 once munched my linguistics notes--what a disaster!
