I just picked up a Roland D-5 and a D-20 synthesizer but I want to reset them to their factory preset sounds. I understand from the answer to this question that I can reset the device, but I'm not sure if the procedure described restores the synth to factory settings, or simply erases everything. Which is it? I am interested only in a factory reset - I don't want to end up erasing everything and then have no sounds at all.

    I edited this question pretty heavily based on information in Bill's answer (now deleted) to that other question. This question is not about how to perform a reset, it's about whether that reset deletes everything or reinitializes the data to a factory state. I believe it stands on its own now. – Warrior Bob Aug 29 '11 at 16:27

According to this site, the D-5 cannot be reset, but the D-20 can.

From what I can tell, resetting the D-20 will put it back to factory defaults without losing all the sounds. (see the comments on this answer)
