Hey Buddies,
Sometimes advanced features can be annoying.. For e.g. Nokia 6630's inbuilt gallery viewer, scans complete mobile for images present and displays all images in Images section. There can be some images, you don't want others to see, want to keep out of other's reach.. My previous nokia 7610 was good at this point, he used to show images present only of current folder, not all mobile memory... And one more thing, if you rename extension of this JPG files, to any other unrecognizable extension, still 6630 is smart enough to recognize that file as picture file and displays in images... and that really sucks !!.. So now I have come up with searching for such a software/app which can protect image files, with password OR simply HIDE the folders from Nokia's inbuilt images viewer's reach... and that software should be smart enough not to display even thumbnails of these images... Do anyone know about such application?
Regards,
Sagar...

UNPLUGGED buddy.. sorry, but u haven't read my query properly as it seems...I already tried that thing...but 6630 is smart enough to recognize those files, even if u change their extension to any damn thing...and it is not always possible to rename extension of all files, bcuz files can be more than 10, 100, 1000...so it will headache to rename them, to hide, and rename back to unhide...did u get my point? I am expecting programmers to make APP like Folder Guard by WinAbility.com which is meant for PC....but atleast somewhat closed to that software, which can hide/unhide folders, with some combination ok hotkeys and password....

I got an IDEA to cheat Nokia 6630... I changed extension of Pictures files to AVI which well recognized format... And guess what, images disappared from Gallery->Images... But those files get listed now in Gallery->Videos section...but who cares, when somebody tries to open them..they don't get open at all giving error in AVI file........well, but although it was good idea, but not good solution at all...my question remains same...isn't it tough job to rename files everytime which can be more than just a one, maybe 10, 100 or 1000s!!

Obv I cant comment on the quantity but the phone is that stupid hence why you can bypass the coipy restrictions by changing the extensions from aac to m4u, sis to sis_ and mid to mid_ to send.

Have you used mumsms on your 6630? If so which version did you use. I have just got my 663o replaced twice by orange as it would not switch on propery, i am almost sure it was the mum sofware that caused this. Does it matter if you save the software to the memory card, cos that is what I done

dear 6630 friends,


this is to inform u that i have found a way to hide the images that u want to hide from others......

first get Fexplorer and install it in phone...

then find the image directory...

select the file you wanto hide,


then "option>file>set attributes> hidden>on"

then select the file again and renaim it to "XXXXXX.jpg.enc"




then go to the gallery of phone like normal way you go before get Fexplorer,

then u will see the different........ these hidden files only can open using Fexplore software.....


so make sure you have hide the Fexplorer icon in unrecharbe menu place.



thank you..... if anything u want to know about 6630... just ask......
