MMC N73 Locked Memory Card

I updated my firmware, and after my phone reset i got asked for a password for my memory card, which i dont remember. so now im locked out and i didnt get round to backing it up, i really dont want to loose my pictures & videos.

I have searched for ways around but it seems pointless. i heard on other nokias you can just copy a file called "mmc store" from your phone to the PC and change it to a .txt document, and that contains the password. However i dont think you can with the N73. I searched my N73 with SExplorer and that file doesn't exist.

Can anybody help me or point me in the right direction?

thanks

MLD

ive seen that already. unfortunatly it doesnt work. the n73 doesnt have a 'remote lock message' option.

This a subject with lot of discussions, so there is not a easy answer... On this forum you my find a great amount of solution, if they work or not, Im not sure.

I'm afraid there's nothing you can do. If the password is forgot the memory card becomes useless.

I've spent about 2 weeks trying to look for a solution on the net, but no case..
No right info, many "useless" for my N95...
N95 doesn't have Remote lock, the mmcstore file on the C dir can't be deleted

using a card reader sounds like the right idea. if its just about pics and videos, then there's no reason they cannot be accessed from card reader.

unless u're talking about retrieving some system files in nokia format.
