How to unlock the password protected memory card of your mobile phone.

by Abhishek on August 4, 2007

Advertisements

I have seen such a case when one my friend forgot the password of his memory card of his mobile phone and he have some very important data in the memory card which he want to recover, he tried almost everything then he lost hope and then asked the mobile phone company to find the way to recover the data from the memory card.

But you don’t worry if you are having the same problem…as now there is a much simple and easy way out.

Requirement: You need a file explorer like FExplorer which you can download from here.

How to Unlock MMC card:

Method 1:

  1. Insert card into your phone but don’t access it through phone.
  2. Run FExplorer and Open the path C:\system.
  3. You will find a file called mmcstore ,rename the file mmcstore.txt
  4. Copy that file(mmcstore.txt) to your pc and open that file in notepad.
  5. You will find your password in that file.

Method 2:

Applicable to all nokia phones which are s60 2nd or s60 3rd edition series phones.check out here.

If you still have any problem in finding your password for your memory card ,leave a comment here.

I made what you told us, but I hadn’t find mmcstore file at all.
Anyway, i found the simplest way to unlock the card: FORMATTING IT!!!
While i was searching for mmcstore file, i wanted to be sure that my phone know it has a mmc card in his slot. So, in the phone menu, i accessed Tools, and after that, Memory. When i opened “Memory” it told me that my card is locked. I’ve opened Options, and after i simply used Memory Card Format option. It worked! I formatted my card, but it’s 100% functional now!

This worked on my N72…

Menu -> Tools -> Memory (it showed me something like “Memory card locked”) -> Options -> Format mem. card

After that, it worked.
I should tell you that my mmc card has locked after i’ve updated it’s software on-line, from nokia.com.

Good luck!

Thanking you.

first, i have a nokia 6600 with my very precious corrupt (in a way because it can not be opened by the phone…says: System Error whenever i insert the card which i have pasted a file in the ‘recogs’ folder) and password-protected mmc. the 64MB MMC is the big one not the reduced size. i really don’t care about the mmc itself but the DATA…..the card contains so much memories…..please respond to ths

if anyone forgets password dont format your phgone

if u will format phone then c\ drive will be formatted along with that file (mmcstore.txt)
and then your memory card cant be opened

even if you go to format memory card will ask for password so no chance

the only way is go to local nokia dealer and tell him to unlock will take approx 200 RS to do this

I’ve formatted my mmc card (on n72) and it worked. It was like new. Anyway, in my searches on the internet i found that formatting the card is the best solution (if you don’t have any important data on it), that now there are available some simple devices which are simply formatting your card to make it functional (they costs ~20EUR/USD).
Anyway, i was a happy person because i didn;t had any important data and i formatted the card simply using the phone.

Hey!
this trick is worked on my n70.
It will work if you had put password to mmc only on your phone, and of course it won’t work on mmc which was locked on another phone

Hi, I have the same problem, I have 2 MMCs one in my Mobile and the other in my pocket. None of them have password. When I remove the one in the mobile, and insert the other, it asks for a password, I tried the software that is mentioned in this column, however I was not able to find the file mmcstore in it. Please help me regarding this. You can email me at dolphing.software@gmail.com. Thanks in advance. Dolphin.

i have a nokia 6270 and i just got it from the repair shop yesterday. I had them fix the buttons and when i came to take the fone they told me they fixed the buttons and they updated the software. So i was like ok sure. But when i came to open my gallery the picture of the memory card had a little lock. I opened it it required a password even though i didnt put a password on it. and when i come to put my USB in it it says ENTER PASSWORD. ive tried everything. AND I MEAN EVRYTHING. i tried the fexplorer thingy but i cant use it because i cant put anything on my phone. PLZ HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP

P.S. the memory card was with me tho whole time. But i think it was from the software update.
