It happened to me on Friday, too, under more or less the same conditions

WSmith@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 08/12/05 09:03AM >>>Last night, I'd been reading an Audible book. I briefly switched to a text file, then back to the Audible book. When I pressed the 2 key to resume reading, the BP announced that the default settings had been made, then said something that I couldn't understand because of the combination of the high voice pitch and my own hearing loss, but I did manage to hear something about "CF card" and "press the zero key to reset." Every key press produced the same message and when I pressed zero, everything came back. Of course, I had to re-establish all of my preferred settings and reset the clock. I was placed in the Audible file that I'd been listening to when this first happened and at the correct spot in the book, so that, at least, hadn't been fouled up. My batteries (the 15-minute rechargeable Ray-O-Vacs that I've used without any problems for several months) are at 60% charge, so it wasn't a low battery condition.
My question is what would have caused this in the first place? The fact that I've recovered without any apparent damage to the card or its file structure is fine, but my technical curiosity has been aroused and I'm simply curious to know what brought this on.
