SD card password: lock, forgot, remover

MicroSD cards are compact, space-saving memory devices that are compatible with most modern devices. Because of this, if ever a user loses the password to his or her microSD card, it can turn into quite a stressful production, as access to data is automatically blocked. This article will explain two quick ways to regain the password to your memory card and how to proceed with a password reset.

To unlock a MicroSD card:

  • Go to the file manager on your mobile phone. Then, head to Settings > System Folders. Find a file called mmcstore, and send it to your computer using Bluetooth.
  • Next, use Notepad to open your file. The password for your memory card is located within that file.
  • Another possible method includes you inserting your card into your phone without accessing it. Run FExplorer, and open the C:\system file path.
  • Find the file called mmcstore, and rename it as mmcstore.txt. Copy the .txt file to your PC, and open it in Notepad.
  • Your password will be located within that file.

N.B. MicroSD card users can place the card into any E-series mobile or N95 and format it. It will not ask for a password.
