True, I am betting you did the brain wipe reset.  While it is not
suppo9se to do anything to a card, I have heard very bad things
happening.  Or pressing and holding the reset button while cards are
installed.  Usually though it is safe, but there is that slight chance
something might go wrong.  Especially with ATA cards.  The older linear
with 5v read 12v write (or 5v/5v) seem to be very robust.  The 3v write
cards often are finicky in my experience.
