K20D switched from RAW to JPG files w/o me changing it!

I have my K20D set to record DNG Raw images. When I came back from shooting a few test images, the first 5 images were DNG and the rest were all JPGs. I reviewed the image data and was in TAv mode the whole time. At no time did I go to the menu and Change the File Format while shooting, but after checking the camera and the file format was now on JPG.

I'm unable to reproduce the problem, but I'm sure I didnt cause it via the menu.

Is there some other way to change the file format other than the menu?

Any one else run into this?

Pete

Did you bump the RAW/JPG button while shooting test images?

I didnt think the Raw/JPG button switched it to JPG only. I thought that when pressed it would shoot both Raw and JPG. I'll have to read the manual again and play with it.

yes, I have the RAW button setup as:
JPG -> RAW
RAW -> RAW+
RAW+ -> RAW+

The Cancel each time option was UNchecked.

From what I can tell the only way to get into JPG mode is via the menu.

It hasnt happened again...
