    I have this memory card from way back, probably more than 8 years ago. I put a password on it like an idiot, and can't remember it. Windows doesn't recognise it at all. Can I somehow crack it?

    You' better to get an old laptop that recognizes the card. After that, you can use cracking software to brute-force the password

    you can format the card in the same phone (if memory serves me well) and lose the content but be able to use the card again.

    I would like to access the files, though. Also, formatting requires the password, too.

    mmm... you should try what @DaRk_ViVi said then. or stick the card on a pc, mmc cards are identical to sd cards so any sd card reader should work.
    I never put any password to my memory card but I do know that the only difference between mmc and sd cards is that the former don't have any kind of built-in protection, so the password protection thing must be something that symbian handles by software and easily bypassed by putting the card on another device.

    what a second, what phone is it??
    by that screen resolution and interface I assumed it was an old s60 phone and all those used mmc, rs-mmc or mobile-mmc.
    anyhow, here is a method (method 3) that seems to work for modern symbian phones.

    tough luck, I haven't found other ways other than accessing the phone internal memory via nokia pc suite.
    have you tried default passwords like 12345 or 1357??

    Try viewing it in linux. Linux doesn't care about passwords or weird partition formats.
