Save photos from dead N8

Hi guys!
Cannot boot my Nokia N8, it just hangs with white screen. So I guess I have to send it to NCS.
The thing is, I have som photos on E: that I haven´t backed up.
Do you know any way to retrieve them before I send my N8 to Nokia.
Tnx
Anders

the first thing I would try

is long pressing the power button. It should double-buzz and restart. If you are lucky then the device will reset and start as normal.
If you connect the device via cable to your PC does the PC detect it at all?

Good Luck!

Seki: The long press doesn't work. It turns the phone off, but when I try to power on, I get the same problem.
My PC doesn't detect the phone.

Update: By connecting it via USB to My PC and at the same time loading the phone via the small loading connector, it booted up! At once I copied my photos to the PC.
Then it was Alive for almost half an hour before it died again. :( Anyway, problem solved. Tomorrow I will take it to Nokia service.

the charging connector will not do anything much usually

if your phone is switched off and you connect it via usb, you should (at the first time) start installing drivers for a mass memory device, after that it will open the mass memory as how you would see a usb drive.

N8 White Screen At Boot

I had copied a file to mod my N8 onto C, upon reboot, I had a while screen that did not progress. No logo, no nothing.

I followed the instruction to hard reset but according to the instruction, I did not work.

Instead of holding all buttons including the power button, we needed to hold the three & press power on (keep holding only the three buttons until nokia appears)

On this occasion I expected all internal memory to be wipe, but as soon as as i saw nokia I release & C only was wiped with E remaining untouched.

Luckily I recovered a few files and many applications were left. Perhaps others can test this because generally the boards say that all internal memory is wiped when you see the handshake, but this did not happen for me, perhaps due to early release?
