BB9000 recovering memopad files

My 9000 seems to have finally given up, but only with the operation of the push selection on the thumbwheel..I can move sideways and up and down but cannot select anything.  I can connect to my pc and see all the folders.  I hve used BB Desktop to backup my files but only see a .cab and .ipd files in the backup folder.  Can someone tell me how to recover the notes I have in the MemoPad?  I would really appreciate it.

Hi kinlock39,

Your notes have been backed up as a part of the .ipd file. If you swap to a new BlackBerry, you will be able to restore them no problem. Alternately, you should be able to sync them with Microsoft Outlook if you have it installed on your computer.

Re: BB9000 recovering memopad files

in addition to Krypto's reply, there are solutions to extract information from the IPD files using a Windows PC. Check this recent post by JSanders:

Re: BB9000 recovering memopad files

i don't want you to think that I am ignoring your helpful replies.  I have tried two so far.  #1 gives an error message saying that 1 cell in the required DST file is incorrect format but it is the same as all the others!  I have emailed the author to see if there is a fix.  I did download #3 but it will not open.  I have emailed them also.  Still ahve to try #2 and also Xandrex's link.  Thanks for your help.  I will confirm if I am succesful.

the second option, Mena Step worked for me and recovered all my memos.  I have to reformat in some cases and cut and paste but whew! compared to losing them - priceless.  thanks so much.

Re: BB9000 recovering memopad files

I received a very helpful reply from IPDParse and using v 2.2.10 it ran perfectly and produced an .xls file which required no reformatting of my memos.  they also have a method for .bbb files, which the lates Blackberry Desktop produces.

Very good solution.
