How to format n-gage game cards?

I wonder if there is a way to format N-gage Game Cards.Cos i got 2 game cards bundled with my N-gage.(Tony Hawk's Pro Skater & Tomb Raider) But i want to use this cards for storing mp3 and else.I heard some rumours about formatting cards is available.But i dont know how.
With the Tomb Raider game card inside when i plug N-gage into my PC it doesnt even recognizes the phone and when i try to delete the files in mmc it says "READ ONLY".So what should i do?Help pls !

They can't be formatted as they are not writable at all. They are MMC-ROM (MultiMedia Card, Read Only Memory) cards.

surely if you could crack their copy protection, you would then be able to delete the files on it?

anyway no use deleting. each one is i think around 10 mb

thats not enough for many mp3s

buy a 128 or 256 would be much better

I dont think you can erase at all because the chip on the inside has certain connections missing in order to prevent writting. So for all practical reasons i think it is not possible.
If you dont have an old man buy one


cards, format, game, ngage
