Hero Settings changed by inserting different SD card

So, I put an SD card ORIGINALLY in my  Hero 5... which seems to have changed all of my camera settings!   They used the card to transfer some of their Hero 5 footage... which they EDITED (meaning: the single file they added to the ROOT of the SD card, was the rendered output of THEIR Hero 5 footage).

 

The settings that my camera changed to, seems to match THEIR camera settings.

 

 

Is it possible that the single EDITED file (From *their* Hero footage), caused MY hero to adopt their settings just by having that file on MY ORIGINAL SD card?  I'd love to understand this.

 

Thanks for your help

Hi @sweetgorge67736,

 

It won't change. 

The settings used on your camera will not change even if you change SD card.
