Unlock password protected memory card?

Unlock password protected memory card?

Hi,

 

Like always, on previous Symbian phones I have locked my memory cards with passwords and if you were to insert that locked card into another Symbian phone, it would immediately ask you to enter the password. I did so with my old phone (Nokia C7) and now after inserting that locked card in the 808, nothing comes up.. it doesn't ask for a password input. I am now stuck with a 16 gigs locked micro SD card to which I know the password but I can't unlock it! I know for sure that password protected cards will not show up on computers and it doesn't show up on my gf's Android either. I have been to a Nokia care shop and they have tried with other Nokia phones but nothing worked. They suggested using the phone it was locked with but that's not a possibility because it was broken into pieces and sent to Finland :smileyhappy:

 

What else can I try to be able to unlock/input my password into this SD card?

Any help is much appreciated!

Open Files app, long tap on F: Memory card and see if there is possibility to set or remove password. Be careful though, as you might accidentaly destroy the contents of the memory card.

Hi guys,

 

Basically, I didn't forget my password, it's just that I don't have any means of entering it!

When I insert the card in my 808, nothing comes up and in file explorer it says "memory card unavailable" or when I insert it in my computer, nothing shows up!

I've read in the link that

Try to find some other Nokia model that takes MicroSD cards and use it to unlock the card. Or if you don't need the contents of the card you can format it using Files app or a computer and card reader.

Re: Unlock password protected memory card?

Try reading my post again before replying! Any memory card that has been locked on a Nokia phone won't be usable on any computer, it simply doesn't show up in My Computer!

 

Update: I have tried many different Symbian or S40 phones and none of them seem to ask for a password and all I get in the Files app is "Memory card unavailable".

You alone can determine the intrinsic value of data upon card to see whether financially viable to access as here as since June 2012 it has been possible to "brute force" microSD passwords using ATF Nitro box:http://discussions.nokia.com/t5/Pool-of-Knowledge/Forgot-your-memory-card-password-Here-is-what-you-...
