My Nokia 6300 will only allow me access to my memory card if I turn off the phone, remove then replace the memory card, then turn the phone back on again. I will then have access to my memory card for approx 10 mins before it dissapears from my Gallery. Any Ideas why this might be? I have had the phone for 10 months and it has always been like this, I have tried other memory cards but the same thing happens! Cheers

Re: Nokia 6300 won't recognise Memory Card
If your memory card is not working properly, back up any data from your device's memory card to your PC, then format the memory card using your Nokia device. Please refer to your device's user guide for information on formatting the memory card.
If you get an error message during the formatting process, or an error message after formatting stating that your device cannot read the memory card volume, please take the memory card to your nearest Nokia service point. Warning: Formatting your memory card will permanently erase all data stored on the memory card. Please back up all data stored on your memory card before formatting. Important: The memory card inside your Nokia device should ONLY be formatted using your Nokia device. Do not attempt to format your memory card on another device such as a PC, otherwise your memory card may not work properly.

Enter the default Nokia security code of 12345.Reboots the phone.Switch it off. Remove battery, SIM card, and Memory card.Fix it back after 15 minutes and try and go to memory card folder. You should be able to access the memory card then.
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... OR: Check here:
Try the memory card in a memory card reader and try it in your PC, make sure the card is readable on the PC, if it is it could be a fault with the memory card reader on the handset... If you cant access the card, then it could just be a faulty MicroSD
Ok, sorry for the confusion. I'll elaborate it this way. I have a Nokia N70 all the data from memory card got deleted. When I tried to access the card, it said "Memory card corrupted". I tried to format it but it doesn't work. I even connected it to PC but PC doesn't recognise the card. Hope this is clear. Please help!!
