.ipd backup files - how to open?

I have a curve 8330 and installed the CD-Rom that came with the unit - I tried backing up my address book and it ended up creating an .ipd file - how do you open this file? how do you transfer these names to an excel spreadsheet? Any ideas?

Re: .ipd backup files - how to open?


you have created a backup file. The only thing you can do with it, is restore it on your device. You can't extract data from it.
