Noki v1.7 need your help on  .arc (memory card) file. 
I'm now writing .arc file parser for Noki v1.7. The .arc is a backup file which holds Nokia phone's content on the memory card. The v1.7 in development can now parse several sample .arc files well. But I need further tune the code to make it work for more varieties of Nokia phones. 

If you have a .arc file at hand, please kindly send it over to help next version of Noki (If the file is too big, please try this file split tool).

Thank you.

Noki v1.2 version support Symbian phone book database Contacts.cdb file located in C:\System\Data. Contacts.cdb can be copied to PC or backuped into the .nbu file using PC Suite. Noki support both of them.

1)if you'd save Contacts.cdb in a separate file and want to view the content.

Just browse and open the .cdb file as other backup files then save the .cdb in your preferred format (txt, excel or html). Noki will parse the phone book database and convert the phone book entry to standard vCard files (.vcf). You can then extract them to single vCard files and copy the vCards back to your phone via PC Suite's contacts manager to safely restore your phone book database.

2) if Contacts.cdb is packed in the backup file (.nbu)

The Contacts.cdb is under "contacts database" directory. It can be converted just like all other files. .cdb can also be converted into vCard files for restoring back to the phone via PC Suite.

To view the content of the .cdb file, you can choose "extract to..." in the right click menu to extract the Contacts.cdb file. Then reopen it using Noki as stated in 1) above.

Though Noki has been tested with Contacts.cdb files from different phone models, it might fail to parse your .cdb file - please kindly email me the Contacts.cdb file for an analysis.

The Excel .xls file has several advantages over plain .txt file:

  • items are better organized in worksheets, rows and cols with summary
  • items can be colored for better view/print
  • .xls file has better editor Microsoft Excel (commercial) or OpenOffice Calc (free)
  • .xls file can convert to other universal formats like: HTML, XML, txt and csv (consulting the above two editors for format details).

2) Converting or merging to Html file

Html is also an easy read universal format. If you have no a decent .xls reader at hand and want a better-than-txt format, you can convert the backup file to Html. The finetuned Html file has summary, index, navigator and cursor high light:


3) Iconed windows XP tyle menu with hotkey support

This feature is just to make selection more intuitive and quick.
