Help recovering files from a Blackberry memory card

#1 Post by blohan »

Hello everybody, last year I lost a VERY special picture of me and my mother at a Madonna concert thanks to some IMBECILE TWAT at a cellphone store, and I really wish to recover it, I've tried many other programs and no luck, for some reason they never register the cellphone card which I connect with the cellphone connected to the pc with a usb cable. I downloaded photorec and testdisk, and it seems more sophisticated, so I have some hope but I really don't know my way around it, I'm not tech saavy, please can anyone help me?? with a step by step? I'm desperate :(

You need to turn on USB mass storage mode. On most model, you have to connect the phone via USB, press the blackberry key and enable this option. Once it's done, you can use PhotoRec to recover your data
