I have a Micro SD which was password protected, and since I'm not that good with remembering things, I forgot the password.
When I try to reformat the Micro SD by placing it in the SD card slot via adaptor, but then my pc won't read or display anything in My Computer.

The password was set using a nokia phone. Anyone got ideas?

to that i would ask...

have you installed the drivers for the memory card reader?
is the adapter the correct one for the Micro SD card (i take it it turns it into an SD card?) there are two differnet SD Card connectors i beleive.

the only other think i could think is take your phone to a phone shop and they might be able to wipe it for you, or put it in a different phone.

good luck
