Need more information on how you backed them up

If to a PC Photo's music and video's are easy, just copy them to the appropriate folders on the mass memory

Contacts, best bet is to import your contacts from gmail into outlook and then use ovisuite to sync them

don't think sms are going to be easy if possible at all, may bea ble to do something with csv format

Re: Android backup and restore to Nokia N8 ? I need help !!!!

if you backed up them with the phone then you can't restore it to N8, the two platforms are unsupported.

What Pavillion said,

Two different OS's with two different languages, formats etc,

the only way of transfering between an android and n8 is via a pc

the back up files are completely incompatable

Just borrow someone's android and restore your personal data on it, then sync it Outlook and transfer pictures / other files into PC, then sync N8 to a PC.

Or if you use Google Gmail,

 

As Google mail seems to be hosted on a MS Exchange server (or something compatible) You could set up both phones to sync via mail for Exchange.

 

You could them sync the PIM details from the Android to Google, and the sync it back to the Nokia phone.

 

If you continue with this method you get to sync back your details to Google and set times per day/week/month, so a great way to keep it backed up

 

You would need to configure the phones for mail for Exchange rather than Google mail settings, but as long as you use the m.google.com in the settings, it all seems to work well.

 

Well it did for me with the Motorola Defy to my N8.

 

Not sure if this link will display,

Then you

Borrow someone's Android and restore your backup on it, then use http://www.bloove.com to copy data (contacts and sms only) from Android to Nokia phone
