Unhappy How to Recover Files from Dead Bold 9000

Please Login to Remove!

My Bold 9000 died on me a while ago and I want to recover some files that were on it - mainly pictures that I took with the camera phone. I did not have the chance to back them up before it died.

I am not sure what exactly happened to it - it just wouldn't turn on, and the red LED kept flashing for some reason. I tried new batteries and that did not work; it just did the same thing again. I was told that it was either a hardware issue or an OS issue.

I was due for a new one anyway, but I want to salvage files that were on the old one. I have been unable to access the files (and the device in general) through the Desktop Manager. It recognizes that there is a device, but, as far as I can tell, it cannot access it now that it is dead. Is there a way to access it and the files that I have not figured out?

Also, where is the media card on the Bold 9000? I can't find it, just the SIM card. How would I get the files from the media card onto a PC?

Default Re: How to Recover Files from Dead Bold 9000

f the files are in memory ont he device itself, and it will not boot nor be recognized by either DM or BBSAK, then you are about out of luck.

As for the media card, search is your friend: How to insert micro sd card?

To get the files on the card to a PC, you need to get an adapter and then plug it into the PC just like you would with any SD card.
