Subject: RE: pressing hold while booting erases settings

RE: pressing hold while booting erases settings

"pressing hold (lock) while booting erases settings" is IMHO a very annoying
feature. Normally this requires an explicit manual action since you can't
boot while the lock is on -- except when the player automatically reboots
after unplugging the USB cable. It has bitten me a number of times already
when this unintentionally erased all my settings because hold was on while
unplugging the USB cable. I'd suggest to move this functionality to a key
one has to actively press while booting (eg. rewind).

Thoughts?

Why would you have the player on hold while plugged in to the pc anyway?

Hi,

first post here, I'd like to make a suggestion;

"pressing hold (lock) while booting erases settings" is IMHO a very annoying
feature. Normally this requires an explicit manual action since you can't
boot while the lock is on -- except when the player automatically reboots
after unplugging the USB cable. It has bitten me a number of times already
