    Memory card password locked

    Hi anyone got any idea how to recover from a forgotten mem card password ? As soon as I bought my N85 I set a password on the standard Nokia 8GB microSD card but now I've bought a 16GB Scandisk and I've got a potential buyer for the 8GB but I need the password or is there any way I can flash it so that it forgets the password ? Help would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks !

    You could try the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool from HERE.

    No g'tee that it will do the trick, though it cured a corrupted flash memory of mine that the pc format tool couldn't even 'see'...

    Okay I found the solution to anyone who was in the same situation as mine. Format by didnt work, format with HP tool ddnt work. I did a hard reset, then the phone considered the card as LOCKED and didnt let me access it, then I formatted, USING THE PHONE TOOL, and it worked !! Phone asked me to set a new password and voila, problem solved !!
