In digital world memory cards are an extension to user’s ability for storing, transferring and sharing data. Many digital devices available in the open market are designed to support the requirement of adding extra memory in the form of memory cards. With increasing use of such types of data storage devices their value as a source of digital evidence cannot be ignored. Multimedia memory cards may be recovered from devices such as mobile phone, digital cameras, and PDA’s. Password protection to the storage devices can be a big challenge to forensic examiners. In this paper an attempt has been made to provide solutions to digital forensic examiners in handling cases where memory cards are protected with a secrete password. The suggested procedure allows the examiner to remove the password and to image the memory card for further analysis.
