  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    I forgot my memory card pasword, want to remove it without formatting. using Nokia 5300 XpressMusic RM-146.

    well a tip from my side: 1 -the memory card works fine in the phone so u can connect ur phone to pc and transfer all files from memory card to a pc. 2-then remove memory card from phone and connect it directly to a pc and format it.this will remove everything from the card. 3 -if not working, put the card in any digital camera and format through the camera, this usually works :).

    hope this helps

    Where is the memory card settings in the nokia 5300

    The best way to find the memory capacity is to open either the music player or the messaging option on the menu. Then hit the options key and the last thing on the list that pops up will say "Memory Status".
    Open that and you can see both the phone memory and the memory card memory,

    Hope this helps!

    Also, if it does help, make sure you rate it for me, ok?

    How can i unlock my memory card

    You can recover the password, the best way is to download a file manager to your phone. I use Best Fileman from It's for series 60 and 40. The trial version should be enough, it's only £5.60 anyway.
    In the file manager you'll find under- C:\System\mmcstore -the file you're looking for, you have to rename the file- mmcstore.txt -then send it to another mobile (best way) or your PC via bluetooth/USB open it on the other phone/PC and your password will be revealed.
    Afterwards, rename the file- mmcstore.txt -to just- mmcstore -(what it was) another file named- mmcstore.txt -might appear to view your password rename one or the other- mmcstore1.txt -one is for your phone PIN number the other your MMC card.
    Clear enough?
