    I had the same problem. It required a reinstallation of the firmware. I managed to find a copy on the web (Toshiba was no help) and when I installed it, everything came back (no files lost). Unfortunately, I've since had a hard drive crash on my computer so I don't have the file to send you but Google it and you'll eventually track one down.

I had the same problem. Reinstalling the firmware solved it but you can't get it from Toshiba (they were no help). I found a copy on the web but have since had a hard drive so I no longer have the file. Try a Google search for gigabeat firmware and you should track it down.

I had forgotten my mmc password of nokia 6208c.so tell me how to unlock it and fexplorer aslo dosen't support my phone to unlock


I have read so many questions how to unlock password-protected memory card. This happens very frequently to some of us (including me). Usually for security reasons, we protect our memory cards with password. It can be done from Memory Card application by selecting Options ' Set password menu.

For S60 1st and 2nd Phones
What should we do if we forget the password? For S60 1st and some of 2nd phones, such as Nokia 3650, Nokia 6600 and Nokia N-Gage, the password is stored in a plain text file.

  • Firstly, you need to install FExplorer, a free file manager that allows us to browser through S60 file system.
  • Next, launch FExplorer and then browser to c:\system folder. There is a file, called mmcstore.
  • Rename the file to mmcstore.txt and then open it. Your password must be several characters at the end of the file.
For S60 3rd Phones, Nokia N-Series and Nokia E-Series
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover the password in the latest S60 phones. The only way that I know so far is by reformatting the memory card. It can be done from Memory Card application by selecting Options ' Format memory card menu. Of course, you will lose all your data in the memory card... icon_sad.gif

Compatible devices: S60 1st, 2nd, 3rd Edition, Nokia Nseries, Nokia Eseries.
Update (27-Mar-07): I have written another posting about password-protected memory card on Another Tip for Password-protected Memory Card. This mostly applies to Nokia Eseries.

I wann update my nokia n 72 software


  1. Go to the Nokia website and download the Phone Software Updatemag-glass_10x10.gif utility. You should also consider reading the FAQ which will help you if you run into problems.

  2. Install the software.

  3. Optionally, follow the phone backup procedure below.

  4. Start the software. The initialization can take a few moments. Once the software has been initialized you should see this screen:

    1.jpg

  5. Click Start. Plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the USB cable to connect the phone to the PC (and choose 'PC Suite', if there's a choice of modes, as will be the case if you're using a S60 3rd Edition device). You should also plug in the power cable to the phone. Updating the firmware can use a lot of power and by plugging in the power cable you ensure that the power does not fail during the update process. If it does your phone may become unusable.

  6. Click Next. The software will try and connect to your phone and identify it. Once it has done this it will search for updates through your PC's Internet connection.

    4.jpg

  7. If no updates are available then the program will inform you. If updates are available then you will see this screen. Tick the acknowledge box and then click Update to start the update process.

    6.jpg

  8. The software will then download the update from Nokia's servers, before writing the update to the phone. You will see this happen in two stages. The most important stage at which the update should not be interrupted is when writing the update to the phone.


    11.jpg

    13.jpg

  9. Once this stage has been successfully completed you will be informed that you have successfully updated your phone.

  10. Optionally, restore your backup as discussed in the Phone Backup Procedure below.
Notes:
  • In some cases (including one of our trials) the software may report it has failed to update the software. If this occurs at the end of the process then this may not actually be the case. Reboot the phone (you may need to take the battery out) and check the firmware version. Hopefully all will be well.

  • An Internet connection is required to download the firmware update. These firmware updates can be up to 40MB in size (but are usually around half this), which is why broadband is recommended.

  • The Phone Software Update is still being tested. If it does not work first time - try again.

  • If you receive messages about being unable to recognize the phone, being unable to connect the phone, or that the connection is already in use then you should restart your computer and your phone and try again.

Phone Backup ProcedureUpdating the firmware will overwrite any information stored on the internal flash disk (C:). If you wish to preserve this information then you should back it up before updating the firmware. Information stored on the internal disk typically includes data files such as your Contact and Calendar databases, plus application configuration files (including registration codes).
You can use PC Suite to do a full backup or you can use the backup to memory card functionality included on the phone.
Using the phone:
  1. Open the Memory application (usually found in the Tools folder).
  2. Choose Backup phone memory. This will backup the contents of the internal memory to the memory card. This process can take several minutes.
To restore your backup:
  1. Open the Memory application.
  2. Choose Options -> Restore from card. Your backup will be restored. This process can take several minutes. At the end of the procedure the phone will restart.

Firmware OTA - the future?Phones using S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 will ship with FOTA functionality from day one. This stands for Firmware Over The Air and will use the data connection of your phone to download software updates. This allows you to carry out the process outlined above directly from your phone. Updates are started from the Device Manager application. An example of this can be seen in the screenshots below.

Memory password problem please tell me how broke the memory password and solve my problem


For Nokia s60 1st and 2nd edition phones.
1. First Install FExplorer in your phone memory.
2. Got to drive C: , you will find a file called mmcstore
3. Send it to your pc directly and open it in notepad or rename the file.
4. At the end of the file you will find your password...

For Nokia S60 3rd Phones, Nokia N-Series and Nokia E-Series
There is almost no way yet known to hack the memory card password in case of these types of phone but there is a way to do it some of the s60 3rd edition phones and almost all the E-series phones.
The remote lock option in E-Series phone allws you to unlock your phone by sending a sms.
The only thing you have to do is to activate this feature by going to Tools | Settings | Security | Phone and SIM | Allow remote lock menu. The password of your memory card will be your remote lock message.
So you have to just send a sms containing your remote lock message that will automatically change your memory card passsword.

My Compaq laptop Presario F700 series, Vista and AMD64AnthlON X2


Microsoft security updates have disabled wireless cards in the past, preventing systems that connect via wireless card to connect. One way around this is to revert to a point before the update or uninstall the particular update that is causing the problem through "Add Remove Programs" and usually within a few days Microsoft will have an update with a fix available.
Though this is the first I've heard of such a problem recently, it's not unheard of.

Gasoline smell fom volvo s60,no leaks noticed


In may be the fuel pump. Check recalls on your year make and model. My girlfriend has a 2004 S60 which had the same problem. I changed the fuel filter at first assuming that that was the problem but the smell persisted. I then took it to the volvo dealership and had them replace it for free. The only bad thing is that they may keep it for a few days to do it.

Apparently you have to restore the firmware. Download the zip file from http://www.aibohack.com/giga/repair_gigabeat.zip I found it on http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19406 site.

Read the "read me" and follow the instructions. Got mine magically fixed!

Backup problem


7610i and N70 are two different versions of the Symbian S60. I do not believe that the backup data from the 7610i and the N70 are compatible. As the S60 firmware of the N70 has been updated a great deal. The solution is most likely, the hard way, typing in all of the contacts and appointments from scratch. Either using your computer or your phone.
